Rosie The Riveter Trust - Richmond CA

As the U.S. faced a new and daunting challenge of global war in the 1940s, people on the home front came together as never before. The stories of their struggles, which broke barriers and shaped many of today’s best social innovations, charted a path for a new vision today.

Rosie the Riveter is a reminder to all of us to try new things, test our limits, and believe in ourselves and others. These tales of dedication and courage can inspire us!

rosie-the-riveterAn unusual urban national park, the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park (RORI) is located on the waterfront in Richmond, CA. It is the flagship national park for telling stories of the home front efforts across the United States. Park sites you can visit include the Oil House Visitor Center, the Rosie the Riveter Memorial, the historic Ford Assembly plant, Maritime Childcare Center, and more. Visit us and learn!

donate nowDear Friends of Rosie the Riveter Trust,

There are few people who have captured American hearts and minds as much as legendary Ranger, Betty Reid Soskin!

Rosie The Riveter Trust is producing a broadcast-quality 30-minute film on the life and experiences of Ranger Betty -- To help us reach this goal the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation has offered to match all gifts up to $8,000!

Thanks to the generosity of the East Bay Fund for Artists, and supporters like you, we hope to seize this opportunity to educate and inspire thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. The Rosie the Riveter WWII/ Home Front National Historical Park is the only national park dedicated to telling the stories of the ordinary, extraordinary people who came together during WWII.

Will you help us meet our goal by donating? Your gift of $100, $250, $50 or $500 will help us meet our match and enable us to preserve this and other important legacies of Home Front life!

P.S. We want to preserve this important legacy on film for generations to come and time is running out. Please contribute NOW to help us meet our challenge by July 15th!
