Celebrating the Women in Our Community — Call for Submissions!


All too often, we wait to celebrate the women in our community posthumously. Let’s talk about them now, while they’re still among us! Let’s document our women’s history now.

Complete the short form below (or through the link here) telling us about a woman who has inspired, influenced, or transformed you. Every Monday in March the Emerald will publish your stories.
