On January 19, 2018, we celebrate our one-year birthday as a grassroots feminist organization committed to empowerment, community, and creativity! We could not have done all that we did in our inaugural year without the love and support of everyone who showed up and stepped up for the St. Pete Women’s Collective.
We’d like to share deep gratitude to the following community members, whose generosity is the very foundation of who we are:
Black Crow Coffee Co. for hosting Craft Nights, #MeToo events, Adulting 101 series, donating treats to our events, and offering heartfelt support. We’d like to give serious love and gratitude to Mama Crow, Deana, who is a shining light in St. Petersburg and a true ally to all that we stand for.
St. Pete Indie Market for featuring us as the community partner for November’s Indie Market, and Rosey Williams for all of your heartfelt support and collaboration with the upcoming Boss Lady Summit Series!
Green Bench Brewing Co. for spotlighting our organization during November’s Indie Market, and donating proceeds from our special rosé bar. Big ups to Valerie Niager, one hell of a boss lady who's shown us nothing but love since our paths crossed.
The Gobioff Foundation for awarding us a generous grant to enable Bluebird Books Bus to thrive in 2018!
Todd Smith from Winesmith St. Pete for honoring us as nonprofit of the month at your monthly wine tasting for a cause.
Tyler Weiss for being the best example of what a white, cisgender, heterosexual male feminist can be! You lifted things, you brought us things, you fed us, you made us laugh, and you showered us with praise and support at every step along the way.
Our boss boss boss volunteers who showed up and helped with so many events this year! Shout out to Julie Cardamone, Karen Mollard, Daniela Ayala Marquez, Alan Winston Elliott, The Nasty Boys (Matt, Esteban, Micah, and Salad), Cassie Haugli, Betsy Alvarez, and Lila Madden!
