Over 170 Women and Girls Made PAWMA's First Online Camp a Huge Success

Camp 2020 "Connect · Activate · Engage"

PAWMA's 43rd annual training camp connected our community online, activated new ways of training, and engaged us to show up boldly in the world around us.

We were excited to recreate camp online with a talented roster of instructors, opportunities for learning and exploration in our Annual Meeting and racial justice sessions, and the not-to-be-missed Demo Night!

Black Lives Matter Conversation

Our nation is engaging in conversations that need to be had about how Black Americans face disproportionate violence at the hands of police, a disproportionate rate of incarceration, and systematic racism that prevents access to resources. Below are listed ways that you can help with or without donating money.

This list is sourced from submissions from our PAWMA community and compiled by our newsletter editor. It is, of course, incomplete—we invite you to continue the conversation by sharing resources and reactions in your training communities and in our racial justice programming at this year’s camp!



  • The Bail Project: National revolving fund that battles mass incarceration
  • Black Lives Matter: International organization with a mission to “eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”
    Three women founded #BlackLivesMatter in 2013 as a response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer.
