“After waiting two years to gather in-person to shed light on the growing importance of bringing an end to domestic violence, it makes this year’s Champions for Change all the more meaningful to have Natasha join us,” said Jean Douglas, executive director of Women’s Resource Center. “Through the tragic loss of her mother’s life, the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence was born so that other women and their children would not have to experience what happened to Natasha and her family.
“Unfortunately, the pandemic has also led to an increase in domestic violence, making our work and the funds raised at this event all the more necessary and impactful,” Douglas said.
Since its founding in 1986, the Women’s Resource Center has served more than 100,000 women, children and other survivors of domestic violence.
The Champions for Change event will be held 6:30 p.m. May 5 at 42 West Entertainment Group in Atlanta. Tickets can be purchased online at wrcdv.org/cfc. The event will be live-streamed.
