How do I support this year’s community service event?

In conjunction with our conference, we will continue our tradition of providing assistance to the community and accept donations for My Sisters' Place. My Sisters’ Place strives to end domestic violence and human trafficking through comprehensive services, advocacy, and community education. MSP works to create a world in which every individual has the basic human rights to be free from gender based violence and to engage in relationships that embrace the principles of respect, equality, and safety.
Through direct services, we support victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and human trafficking, in seeking safety, self-determination, and justice. Through advocacy, we act as a force for social change in law and public policy. Through community education, we challenge public perceptions of intimate violence and the social inequities that give rise to it, and we promote prevention with a special emphasis on youth.

My Sisters' Place has a donations "wish list" on Amazon which gives you the opportunity to order and ship direct to My Sister's Place or use the "wish list" as a guide and bring your donation to the conference.  We will be collecting donations onsite the first day of the conference.
