We thank those who attended, donated and sponsored our 2022 Women & Justice Event. You helped us raise over $40,000, exceeding our goal! 

Proceeds raised from the event directly support programs for justice-involved women to receive community-based counseling, advocacy and support to find hope and healing.

Keynote Speaker: Kemba Smith Pradia went from college student to drug dealer’s girlfriend to domestic violence victim, and in 1994 was sentenced to 24.5 years in federal prison. Kemba’s case drew support from across the nation. Often labeled the “poster child” for reversing a disturbing trend in the rise of lengthy sentences for first-time, non-violent drug offenders. The support prompted then President Clinton to commute her sentence in December 2000, after having served 6. 5 years in prison. Today, Kemba is a wife, mother, public speaker, advocate for criminal justice reform, consultant and author of Poster Child.

Stay tuned for information on our 2023 events.
