20th Anniversary

Together Women Rise began in 2003 when co-founder Marsha Wallace invited some friends to her home to celebrate her birthday, a hat was passed, and $750 was raised for Women for Women International!

To celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2023, we are hosting special events throughout the year and across the country. All members are welcome to attend any of the events throughout the year. These events will also be open to individuals who may be interested in our mission and getting involved with Rise. If you have friends, family, sorority sisters, etc. in one of the event cities, please encourage them to attend.

New event dates are still being confirmed so check back often for more info.
