We Advance is a women's rights based grassroots organization that focuses on capacity building. In addition to our health, education, and empowerment programs, we advocate for women locally, nationally, and internationally.
On June 9th, what was supposed to be an intimate fundraiser turned into an incredible gala of more than 200 people! Danny Moder took us on a visual journey through the slums of Port au Prince to the beautiful beach towns. Barbara Guillaume soulfully sang her heart out so we could hear the sounds of Haiti. Both Brenna Whitaker and Blame Sally generously provided music. Maria and Aleda allowed us to feel the passion of the country that abounds. And we were humbled by your support. The money and awareness raised that evening is crucial in providing the poorest slum in the Western Hemisphere opportunity.
But our work is not done.
Haiti is a beautiful and passionate country ravaged by hardship, but never willing to give up. Through it's education and empowerment programs, We Advance is at the forefront of advocating locally, nationally, and internationally for women from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
