We’ll be gathering upstairs at the Palm Springs Cultural Center (Camelot Theatres) for a private meet-n-greet with filmmaker Windy Borman, prior to the screening of her highly acclaimed documentary Mary Janes: The Women of Weed.
Join us for an exclusive opportunity to talk about cannabis legalization, the industry’s gender parity record, Melissa Etheridge’s involvement in the film … and more!

This is a non-consumption, educational event for women/female-identified only. We create welcoming spaces where women can come together to speak openly about women’s wellness.
