In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re partnering with The Women’s Building to celebrate the wisdom of the mothers and women in our lives. The Women’s Building is an iconic landmark and groundbreaking community center that fosters creativity, joy and safety in the vibrant community of women in San Francisco. Since purchasing the historic Dovre Hall in 1971, the San Francisco’s Women’s Centers (SFWC) has transformed the hall into a colorful and breathtaking landmark that reflects the rich lives of the women at the heart of The Women’s Building.

The Women’s Building features an internationally-renowned mural, Maestra Peace, that spans two exterior walls of the structure. Painted in 1994 by Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton and Irene Perez, this awe-inspiring and magnificent piece depicts the inspirational contributions of women throughout history. This passionately expressive piece features some of the most spectacular detail in a city rich in the tradition of murals and truly embodies the radiant community of women that is celebrated by The Women’s Building.

Join us this Saturday, May 10, from 12-4PM to celebrate our wonderful mothers with The Women’s Building, complete with mimosas, chocolates generously donated by Chocolatier Blue, and a raffle for gift baskets. A portion from the day’s sales will be donated to benefit The Women’s Building.
