Please join The Center for Family Justice to celebrate its 125-year history of providing safety, hope and empowerment to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence in the six communities we serve.
Our Jubilee Virtual Gala celebration will reflect on a storied history that dates to our founding as the Bridgeport YWCA in 1895, while honoring the many community leaders who have played a vital role in advancing our mission through the years.
Join us from the comfort of your home for an inspiring evening that will include a celebration of the dedicated service of our past board chairs.
The evening will also feature a special surprise announcement about some exciting plans for CFJ’s future!
