Lyn Stuart speaks at Voices Against Violence event

October 15, 2009

Vulcan is bathed in a pink glow all month as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month. October also is Domestic Violence Awareness month, another issue that affects many women in our community.

Within this month of important causes, October 15 is a special date. That’s when supporters of the Voices Against Violence initiative of The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham come together to announce 2009 fundraising totals, all of which will go back into strategic grants aimed at reducing the number of domestic violence assaults in greater Birmingham. Keynote speaker for the 5:30 p.m. event at the Birmingham Museum of Art is Associate Supreme Court Justice Lyn Stuart.

The Women’s Fund also will celebrate the recognition of the Voices initiative as one of two national winners of the Critical Impact Award from the Council on Foundations. Stay tuned for news of the event and updates on grants that will move this initiative forward.
