Pawtucket International Women’s Day Committee Announces 8th Annual Event: “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” 

 

PAWTUCKET- The Pawtucket International Women’s Day Committee, in cooperation with Senator Sandra Cano and the Office of Mayor Grebien, has announced the 8th annual Pawtucket International Women’s Day Celebration. 

 

This year’s event will highlight a panel including three community members chosen by the committee who have exemplified the theme of “Providing Healing and Promoting Health” including Ashley Perry, Elizabeth Moreira, and Maria Isabel Marin through their work relating to health matters. These panelists will be joined by three Pawtucket High School Student Leaders including Kate McLean, Arissa Campbell, and Victoria Quinn. Additionally, the committee has worked to provide a video highlighting first responders who have assisted Pawtucket through their work. 

 

“The 8th annual International Women’s Day Celebration marks the start of Pawtucket honoring Women’s History Month,” said Pawtucket Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “We are excited to be having this event back in person at City Hall as we honor all of the first responders who have assisted our community during the pandemic and every day in their service to our city.” 

 

“I am thrilled to be a representative of this community with women of this stature and commitment to bettering themselves and each other while supporting our residents and businesses,” said Senator Sandra Cano. “It’s a privilege to see how much this event has grown and the impact it has on our city as we move it back to in person.” 

 

“I am honored to be able to share stories with these successful and impactful women and I think we can all learn something from them,” said Chair of the committee Erin Dube. “Whether it is work ethic or outlook these women are an inspiration and a great representation of our community.” 

 

The event is scheduled for March 8th at 10AM at Pawtucket City Hall (137 Roosevelt Avenue, Pawtucket, RI 02860) and will be livestreamed. Event details can be found at www.pawtucketri.com/womensday.
