Women United for Liberty -- A grassroots movement

Email

Women United for Liberty grew out of one woman's need to see a change. Dianne Joachim, owner of Bear Buddies and co-owner of Kaladi's Gourmet Café, decided it was time to shake things up.

"I called my friend Annette Olson and she was ready," said Joachim, who together with Olson founded the group in April of this year. "We meet every two weeks, have over 100 members and usually we have at least 40 in attendance at each meeting." The meetings usually last about two hours.
