Director's monthly message highlighting the department's initiatives.

“Blossom by blossom, Spring begins!” 

March is a lively month as we prepare to spring our clocks forward for Daylight Savings, wear green for St. Patrick’s Day, and eat lots of green for National Nutrition Month. March is also recognized as Women’s History Month, in which we commemorate the contributions of notable and prevailing women and increase awareness and knowledge of women's history. This year’s theme is the “Valiant Women of the Vote” as 2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment. The theme honors the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights, and for the women who continue to fight for the voting rights of others. Achieving this milestone required lengthy and difficult efforts and it is important to highlight the relentless struggle of diverse activists to secure voting rights for all American women.

In honor of Women’s History Month, write a letter to a woman that inspires you, support a woman-owned business or organization, or look for a local women’s shelter, women’s organization or a women’s health clinic and volunteer in the community.
