Our Vision Statement

Growing The Collective Power of Grassroots Women Through Collaboration and Action

That Is Restorative and Regenerative. 

“The heart must be open, and once it is, information can flow without blockages,” she explains.“People have grief and scenarios in their lives that are unresolved. Those blockages have to be moved for creative energy to move through and be applied to an artistic picture or even an artistic policy.”                           Elder Barbara Brant

Welcome to the General Congress of Women

Honoring the 150th Anniversary of the Mother's Day Proclamation, the clarion call to convene a General Congress of Women, following the American Civil War, and the voice of the Suffragist movement that was well underway, we are proud to announce the launch of The General Congress of Women.


Our initiative is simple. 

Member Congresses join us in contributing to the collective voice of grassroots women, arguably one of the most impactful voices and power of change. Member Congresses are SARAH circles operating in a manner that embraces our 4 Essential Elements of:

  • Circle Principles

  • Financial Wholeness

  • Recognizing the EcoSystem of our Interdependence of the 12 Critical Areas of Concern

  • Agreements of Care and Caregiving

Each Congress is unique in it's vision and goals, yet shares some simple elements or nature, how we care for one another, how we hear one another, and with inclusion of all we impact and who impact us. Collectively, our voice has leverage for common issues and concern, and power in making regenerative change. 

We believe the solutions to any of the world’s problems that you may be addressing can be accelerated with these simple Elements.

Each monthly call elevates each of the 12 Interrelated Critical Areas of Concern through the lens of our interdependence.
