Diversity panel planning event for Women’s History Month

Tiburon’s Diversity Inclusion Task Force plans to recognize Women’s History Month in March and help organize a second Juneteenth festival as part of its effort to encourage more local celebrations of ethnic and cultural events.


At the task force’s Feb. 9 meeting, members Noah Griffin, Karen Carrera and Anette Harris volunteered to organize events for Women’s History Month.


The group will brainstorm ideas, but in a telephone interview last week, Griffin floated at least one, saying the task force could convince some of the prominent women in town to dress up as famous suffragettes and read some of their speeches, or hold an exhibition of photographs of famous suffragettes at Tiburon Town Hall or in the windows of Main Street businesses.


Carrera suggested one option might be to have an outdoor event in downtown Tiburon and invite local women writers “to come and share their voices about current challenges.”
