The Coalition’s 10th Annual Celebration for Change is just a short three weeks away, on Thursday, April 20th! Register today and celebrate the power of a coalition with us.

We’re beyond excited to announce that this year’s Celebration speaker will be Angélica Cházaro, Immigration Attorney and Assistant Law Professor at the University of Washington. For seven years, Angélica worked as an attorney with member organization, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, where she specialized in representing immigrant survivors of violence. Angélica has been a vocal advocate for the rights of undocumented folks, communities of color, and the LGBTQ community. She was also the 2013 recipient of the Coalition’s Ginny Nicarthy Excellence in Advocacy Award! Her work inspires us, and we are thrilled to have her.

Thanks to our Celebration sponsors, all gifts made the evening of the 20th will directly benefit the Coalition’s work to improve our community’s ability to support survivors of gender-based violence. Double your impact! Make a gift of $250 or more and the Fitzgerald Family will generously match it, up to $5,000. We hope you can make it—see you on the 20th!
