Women Making History: Nilda Valmores, My Sister’s House

Women Making History: Nilda Valmores, My Sister’s House

By Erica Root

It takes twenty seconds of courage to change a life.

Earlier this month I sat down with Nilda Valmores, Executive Director for My Sister’s House, a local non-profit here in Sacramento that helps women and children impacted by domestic violence.

March is Museum Membership Month


Did you know that there are more than 30 museums in Sacramento! Many organizations, including the Sacramento Zoo, are members of the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM). Area museums include everything from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife.
