Women’s History Month

The Humanist Society of Redding is presenting a special Women’s History Month (March) panel on Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 2- 4:30 p.m. at the Redding Library, Community Room, 1100 Parkview, Redding, CA.

Panel participants will be three local, accomplished women:

Reverend Dr. Ann Corrin has served in the United Church of Christ for 35 years, and as pastor at Pilgrim UCC in Redding since 2008. She has always been active in each community in which she has served and has been particularly interested in working with those in need of housing.

Lauren Sanchez, Managing Attorney of Legal Services of Northern California’s Shasta Regional office.  She previously worked as a staff attorney for Homeless Action Center in Oakland, California.  Lauren obtained her J.D. from UC Hastings College of the Law.

Dr. Lea Tate was raised in Anderson, California. She has a doctorate in clinical psychology, as well as, an extensive resume including expertise in crisis intervention, multi-cultural populations, individual, and group therapy.  At the present time she is working with veterans at Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic in Redding.

This discussion about citizens without homes offers a different slant on the topic than most of the programs presented in the community recently.

Rev.Dr. Corrin and Dr. Tate will focus on homeless women and difficulties they have, with Dr. Tate speaking about women veteran’s issues.  Ms. Sanchez will discuss the legal aspects pertaining to the unsheltered population as a whole.

The public is welcome.

Women’s History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States with International Women’s Day on March 8th.
