WOMEN @ THE CENTER

While all programs at The Center are built for our entire community, sometimes it's nice to find and create space for ourselves. These programs were created with a focus on LGBTQ women. Plus, get access to our weekly Women's Newsletter, which highlights events created by and for LGBTQ women across the Coachella Valley.
