The Red Tent Women's Project Survey

We're conducting a (relatively) brief survey in order to figure out what kind of actvities to have at the Red Tent Women's Project, and to find out basic info about who's interested in what we're doing. By answering the questions below, you'd be giving us a LOT of help and insight into what needs to be done.

See, we're committed to being an organization that is run by community input. What does that mean? That means that you decide what happens at the Red Tent Women's Project.

So if you suggest a workshop on crocheting, then we will do our best to put together a workshop on crocheting. If you want a support group on divorce, then we will set up a support group on divorce. Get the picture?

We know that we have a long list, and we also know that you have ideas we've never even thought of! So share 'em. What'd we forget that you'd like to see? Or is there anything that you're so excited about and really, really, REALLY want to attend?
We're curious--odds are that you're part of at least one other organization or institution. What need of yours hasn't been met by something that you're already part of? You can be honest--this is all confidential!

Would you be interested in organizing or leading an activity at the Red Tent Women's Project? If yes, here's my contact info and here's what I want to do! (Worry not, it'll be separated from the survey, so your responses will still be confidential.)
Okay. So now we have some demographic questions. Please feel free to not volunteer answers if it makes you feel uncomfortable. We're asking for it because it's helpful for when we apply for funding (e.g. grants), and because we want to make sure that a wonderfully diverse group of people is part of the Red Tent Women's Project. So we hope you answer our questions! And remember, this is all totally confidential--we have no clue who's answering what. Thanks!
