The #Persist Party | Holiday Fundraising Gala
It’s been another eventful year for women. We’ve witnessed incredible women (like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and our very own London Breed) making #history and #progress, but we’ve also suffered alongside survivors like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford; who had the strength to speak up but still struggled be heard. How many of us shared a #WhyIDidntReport story or had to say #WeBelieveSurvivors? The movement for gender equality matters more than ever, and we have a lot of work still to do.
Join us for this unique opportunity to #Resist the status quo and #Persist towards gender equality. The #Persist Party is a holiday event not to be missed; featuring inspiring talks, delicious bites, drinks and the opportunity to network with like-minded friends, old and new.
Proceeds from this fundraising gala will benefit an amazing organization that is a refuge and a beacon of hope for mothers and children who are victims of domestic violence: La Casa De Las Madres.
Your presence at the event can make this big of an impact:
$50 = 1 ticket = Two meetings with one of La Casa’s expert advocates to devise a plan that keeps a mother and her children safe from abuse.
$100 = 2 tickets = A day + a night of safety, refuge and comprehensive support services for a mother and child following a police response to their abuse.
Humans of ALL genders are welcome!
