They’re offering a new Basic Car Maintenance class on Saturday, October 28th at noon and it’s likely to fill up.

RIZE is a center for women to network and take classes in fields where they are underrepresented. Whether a woman is interested in auto mechanics, martial arts, leading partner dance, or fitness, RIZE provides a safe space for them to expand their skills and support one another through Movement Arts and Trades classes. RIZE is welcoming of trans, and gender non-binary people.
