In honor of South Bend's 150th anniversary, The Michiana Women Leaders Project partnered with the South Bend Chapter of the Links, Inc. and the League of Women Voters of the South Bend Area to honor 21 South Bend women at the Civil Rights Heritage Center on Women's Equality Day, August 26, 2015.
The community embraced the tremendously successful event, and an annual celebration was born.
