The Gifts of Hope Committee invites you to attend Gifts of Hope Reach Out, Rebuild, Rise Up! A special virtual event for women to come together and celebrate with the women close to their hearts. This year, we are pleased to host speaker and best-selling author of A Good Wife: Escaping the Life I Never Chose, Samra Zafar. Samra inspires audiences as she shares her journey of escaping an abusive child marriage to pursue her education and shed light on gender-based oppression. We hope that you will join us for Samra’s presentation, opening remarks from Jan Reimer, Executive Director of ACWS, prize raffles, and so much more all in support of ACWS.
Whether you are able to attend this year’s virtual event or not, you can still win one of two amazing prize packages! Tickets for this year’s prize raffle fundraiser are available now. Click here to get your raffle tickets!
Abuse rarely ever starts with physical assault. There are several early signs and “red flags” masked in manipulation that victims often perceive as romance. Join us for Samra’s presentation, Power and Control — Recognizing Early Signs of Abuse, as she uses her personal experiences, insights, and education to shed light on the cycle of abuse, how to recognize early signs of abusive behaviour and protect yourself and your loved ones before it’s too late.
