Wise Women Gathering Place

Wise Women Gathering Place We promote Peace, Respect & Belonging through skill-building, sharing of resources, and caring support for our community. WWGP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, developed by Native American midwives.

WWGP has been incorporated since 1998. Donations Welcome here http://giv.lt/1HBYugN Previously, it operated for decades as a home-bassed grass-roots women's circle. Children in tow, women gathered in each others homes discussing issues around healthy personal relationships, group consensus building, midwifery, breats-feeding, parenting, herbs and more. Five women in this community have apprenticed under mentor midwife Alice Skenadore and began their own midwifery practices. Many other women continue to attend their sisters, daughters, nieces, and friends at birthing providing essential support and encouragement.

An end of an era....After 27 years of “catching babies,” Alice Skenandore hands over her last birth kit to my daughter, who was herself one the 750+ babies Alice caught. Alice and the organization she founded, Wise Women Gathering Place, continue to practice midwifery on the community level by responding to requests for assistance with programming, resources, and information.

Sometimes self-care can be hard to fit into your daily routine but caring for yourself when the world feels unstable is important. It's not always bubble baths and candles, sometimes sitting with ourselves and our medicines for a few moments is all we need to reset.

If you want to talk, call 1-844-762-8483 or visit our website and click on the "Chat Now" icon to connect with an advocate who can offer free culturally-appropriate domestic violence and dating violence support and access to resources.#dv #native #selfcare #takeamoment #takeabreath #datingviolence #indigenous

Thankful to Nestic!

“At the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault, we understand that in order to end sexual oppression, you have to end other forms of oppression,” said Nestic Morris, Outreach Coordinator at WCASA.

Nestic Morris has become a leader in Wisconsin to create the Women of Color Consortium that connects Advocates of Color with each other and with resources to address systemic barriers for sexual assault survivors. Getting nonprofits to hire more women of color is one way to shift white supremacy in service provision and in the nonprofit sector.

I suggested a friend of mine attend the Wise Men's Group at Wise Women Gathering Place. He laughed and asked, why is there a wise men's group at wise women gathering place? I said, "because as women started to gather for our healing purposes, we realized that the men we love also needed what we were accessing and the wise men's group was created to achieve that.
