You make a difference. 


Please donate to our cause! At DWD we are out to create equity for women, trans and gender non conforming folx in the field of construction and housing trades. We want to empower you and what better way is there than creating events around building, power tools and womxn?

With the help of your contribution we will host community building events, tool training and safety workshops, create tool lending libraries, go on creative building retreats, and give out fun swag. 

What kinds of projects do we take on? In December 2018 we brought two transitional shelters that we assembled and insulated in Chico, California. Watch a video of that project here!

Meet ups

Our meet ups are a great way to get involved. Check out our Facebook page for more information on the date and time of our next meet up.

Hire us

Check out our resource page to hire a dyke. Allies and queer alike can support queer people in the building trades by hiring us.


Another way to contribute to what we are up to is by donating your time. All of our projects need volunteer help to come to life. We want to contribute to an ever growing number of people and we cannot do this alone.

Do you not identify as a dyke with a drill? That is okay! Dykes with Drills an all-inclusive community and we welcome people from all walks of life to come out and volunteer with us.

With love and gratitude,
