Network La Red’s 7th Annual Paint the Town (La) Red
Dear QWOC+ Boston Family,
The Network / La Red has been one of the most supportive organizations of our work — including financial backers of QWOC Week, every year. So, of course, QWOC+ Boston will most definitely be attending Paint The Town (La) Red to return the favor.
But beyond community solidarity, their work to raise awareness and educate our communities about partner abuse and domestic violence within marginalized communities is even more crucial. Let us show our support in whatever way we can. Below are a few ways you can plug in:
- They are always looking for new volunteers to support their hotline and other initiatives
- They need silent auction items (own a business, service, training you can offer? let them know!)
- Purchase your ticket: $$$ matter
- Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, Email, Word of Mouth
Here is their website: http://www.thenetworklared.org/
Facebook Event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=126526064083277
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 12th!
The Network/La Red started as a safe haven in some one’s home in 1990 yet now strives and has expanded it’s programming to help other Domestic Violence agencies understand the unique needs of the LGBTQI community.
2 Arrow Street
