The Rosie the Riveter Trust’s mission is “….to help preserve the historic resources of the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, implement its programs, and teach the story of the Home Front. The Trust partners with government, business, labor, academia, and individuals to support: visitor services; research and interpretation of the history of the Home Front; preservation of park sites; and establishment of links to other Home Front sites across the country.”  Check out their website for up-to-date information on events and activities, and if you’re in the Bay Area be sure to stop by.
