The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available online at Brown Paper Tickets – – and at the door.

Powerful Women From Within Petaluma Ca“Powerful Women From Within” is a diverse assemblage of intriguing, inspirational and empowering individual, partner and group poems, stories, portraits and songs written and performed by the actors. Each woman will perform pieces that exemplify her insight on what uplifts and empowers women. An important objective of this event is to educate and connect the local community with the means to join and serve the greater goal of non-violence and women’s empowerment. To accomplish this objective, an integral part of the evening will be an inclusive networking opportunity and the ability for self-empowerment. Various local women centric organizations will be tabling, providing materials, and engaging participants in discussion and information sharing after the performance.

This production is one of many local events sponsored by Guided to Safety, a Petaluma organization whose mission is to promote healthy relationships through community education and resources for the awareness and prevention of domestic violence, teen dating violence and sexual assault.
