Did you know ~ Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the United States, more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. ("Violence Against Women, A Majority Staff Report," Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, 102nd Congress, October 1992, p.3.)
There are so many women that are unknown victims. They may be someone you know, that you speak to every day, someone you work with, a family member.......Domestic Violence doesn't know a particular color, financial status or look. It can affect anyone. I know because I am a survivor of not only Domestic Violence but rape. I wanted to do this event to support the Still Standing Foundation, to bring awareness to the subject and bring women in "ALL" forms to one place, celebrating ~ the immerse from the dark to beautiful light!
The day will consist of our Keynote Speaker Lisa Rayam-Tucker Fox 5 Anchor and Gospel Artist, Cheron K Griffin Author, Executive Producer of Reality Show Preacher's Exes & CEO of Grow A Girl Network, self defense session, survivor swag bags, giveaways, a survivor photo shoot and a beautiful end of event surprise.
The Survivor photo shoot will consist of two different photos ~ An AFTER & A BEFORE.......
The AFTER will be the Survivor now! This is the opportunity to SHINE their freedom from darkness! The BEFORE photo will give the Survivor the opportunity to express their feelings of the crime that was committed against them. Truly a way to capture where they were and the committment to never go back there.
Whether it is abuse, depression, rape know that you are not alone. Join me and the High Heelers as we stand 4", 6" even 7" high saying......We are no longer VICTIMS but beautiful SURVIVORS!
T-Shirts will be distributed to the first 20 Survivors to register!
