Please join us on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at noon for our 24th Annual Speaking of Women luncheon presented by People's United Bank. This year, we welcome the multitalented performing artist and domestic violence advocate Dawnn Lewis to our podium. Dawnn is a dynamic speaker and domestic abuse survivor, who will highlight how important it is for victims to have the support they need to live safe, healthy lives free of the trauma of abuse.
We are excited to announce that Speaking of Women is returning to an in-person format! Guests can either purchase a ticket to our luncheon program at The Waterview in Monroe or attend the event in a socially distant manner via livestream.
The last year has been a challenging one for many of us. For the victims of domestic and sexual violence served by The Center for Family Justice, the Covid-19 pandemic has been especially difficult. Calls to CFJ’s hotlines spiked by as much as 50 percent throughout the pandemic. CFJ’s domestic violence safe house has been at capacity for the last 18 months. Because of this unprecedented demand, CFJ spent tens of thousands of dollars to shelter victims in hotels to protect them from their abusers. Your support of this annual fundraising event will help us continue providing these critical, life-saving services to our clients.
Tickets are $175 each for the in-person event and $125 for the livestream day-of-event broadcast. VIP tickets are $250 and include admission to a private reception prior to the start of the program. The VIP reception will begin at 11:30 AM. Please be aware that VIP guests are not guaranteed a photo with our keynote speaker.
