FOUNDER - NGOZI BELL
My mother believed that there is enough room for everyone and when it gets tight, you just make room, she always did and still does!
Founding Women's History Month City Hall / Lehigh Valley
The Women's History Month - Rising Together - annual event commemorates the National Women's History Month Celebration in March each year. Founded in 2018 by Ngozi Bell, it was launched and anchored by a core team of the Valley's most ardent advocates for progress and good (Loren, Kari, Deb, Cynthia, Tonya, Danielle, and Genie). Today, it is run by the Women's History Month Coalition (WHMC), a team that annually constitutes diverse women and girls to set the theme and agenda for that year's event.
