May 10, 2019: In Celebration of Mothers!
“Arise then, women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!”
Mother’s Day began as a cry for peace by Julia Ward Howe in 1870.
Here at Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP), we arise every day to help those torn apart by violence in the home and in relationships. We see the destruction that it can cause, and we see the tenacity and spirit of those who come to us to better their lives. We believe in the power of the individual and the importance of mothering peace in our community.
The In Celebration of Mothers luncheon honors the mothers who give us life and honors all who give life to hope, equality, love, justice and peace. It brings together our community, both men and women, in celebration of these ideals, and raises funds to support C4DP’s life-giving work.
The luncheon’s featured speaker is Rebecca Traister, author of the award-winning Big Girls Don’t Cry, the New York Times bestselling All the Single Ladies and the newly released Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger. A National Magazine Award winner, she is writer at large for New York Magazine, and has written about women in politics, media, and entertainment from a feminist perspective for Elle, The New Republic and Salon and has also contributed to The Nation, The New York Observer, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire.
This event plans to be a festive and inspiring event with specially themed raffle baskets, a silent auction with over 80 items to bid on from Pixar Tours, winery escapes, jewelry, fine art, and much much more, and many added surprises! Questions? Contact Marla Hedlund at [email protected].
