Special thanks to our founding members who consistently continue to support our organization:
Maricar "Rica" Andrade, Esq. and Bernadette Rigo, Esq.
The idea for Bamboo Bridges began in 2008, when a group of passionate women shared their vision of a stronger community for APA women and their families in southern Nevada. Not only do we want to celebrate their accomplishments and contributions, but we also recognize the challenges they may encounter. We strive to empower each other and create a culture of nonviolence.
