NH Women’s Day of Action & Unity
On Saturday, January 21, 2017, we will unite at the New Hampshire State House in Concord in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington and in support of our rights, our safety, our health, our families, and our environment. Together, we will send a message to elected officials in New Hampshire and Washington, D.C. that we will stand together to protect the progress we’ve made. We won’t go back!
ALL ARE WELCOME. This is an inclusive day of action and unity. We believe in the strength possible when we act together and are committed to an inclusivity that will allow us to build unlikely coalitions among our diverse voices, guide us, and inspire us. Our aim is to solidify unity by bringing diverse voices together so that in the coming months and years of new national and state leadership, NO ONE is left behind. Click here for tickets.
Missy’s Closet Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Come join us as we celebrate the official opening of Missy’s Closet Resale Boutique.
After months of preparation, we are opening our new resale boutique, Missy’s Closet. Missy’s Closet will offer financial literacy and empowerment opportunities to victims and survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault and offer an affordable place for community members to shop. Join us on Thursday, January 26th from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM. Refreshments will be served. Click here to RSVP.
Missy’s Closet was created in memory of Melissa “Missy” Cantin, Charboneau, a talented and caring nurse and a dedicated mother. Missy was killed by her husband on October 22, 2009. Her friends and family have come together with YWCA NH to honor her memory with the creation of Missy’s Closet. Sales from the boutique will benefit YWCA New Hampshire’s Crisis Services Fund and The Missy’s Hope Fund, which helps child witnesses to domestic violence.
