It was a great success and I look forward to seeing you at
the 2013 Northern California Women’s Forum.
About The Northern California Women’s Forum:The Northern California Women’s Forum was founded by Assemblywoman Beth Gaines in 2011 to bring together women from around the Northern California region to recognize achievements and to encourage solution-based community services.
Through Beth’s work as a new Assemblywoman, she has had the benefit of hearing the concerns and interests of women around California. She created the event as a positive forum for addressing these issues and interests and to also share a positive message of how women can and have succeeded as leaders and partners for positive change in their communities and in their personal lives.
The event will also share with attendees how to work with elected officials to further their goals. Professional business women, community advocates, volunteers, wives and moms can all benefit from this positive-charged event.
The 2012 Forum will be held at William Jessup University, at 333 Sunset Blvd, Rocklin CA 95765

Jenny Williamson calls herself an ordinary woman, a less than perfect mom and often weary business owner but when she heard about the issue of sex trafficking - the selling of young girls and women around the world and here in the U.S. for sex - she became a passionate advocate for these children, vowing to building homes for them around the world. Jenny will share the details of this evil as well as the restoration Courage House, the homes she builds, brings to this vulnerable population and what all of us can do as women to rescue and restore them so that they too can live passionate and purpose filled lives.
