BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
alison looman wrote -Welcome to my Above and Beyond Fundraiser page! For those of you who don't know, I serve on the Pro Bono Council of Sanctuary for Families, New York's leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Sanctuary is a really good cause - all those problems you think don't have a solution - it's dealing with them. It offers shelter, legal representation, career training, counseling, and children's services to women who have been abused, trafficked, pimped, or suffered related forms of gender violence and are seeking help, a living wage, housing, and a career. Each October, Sanctuary holds its annual Above & Beyond ceremony, which is one of the main - if not the main - way the organization raises funds to support its legal services program. You should donate. Even $20 helps. Thank you.
