Big thank you to everyone who attended TWC’s FY22 Annual Meeting this week. We had a great conversation about the strengths and growing points of the past year and made some big plans for the coming few months. Thank you especially to TWC’s amazing board of directors, who share their time, knowledge, energy and love to make sure that our agency is running its very best at all times!
Big thank you to everyone who helped us make Domestic Violence Awareness Month a time of reflection and action for our community. We are especially grateful for everyone who joined us in our purple qaspeq campaign!
Quyana to longtime board member and current president, Monica Charles, for coming to TWC a couple of times during October to help residents and staff sew purple qaspeqs for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. She was aided by board member Elizabeth Roll and development manager Lisa Whalen. Our residents enjoyed the activity and were happy with their finish products!
This year, Tundra Women’s Coalition participated in the Clothesline Project, a nation-wide project encouraging domestic violence awareness, showing support for survivors and remembering those who have died at the hands of abusers. More info about the project is available at http://theclotheslineproject.org.
Every year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, friends of TWC show their support by donning a purple qaspeq and sending photos with arms outstretched to signify joining together to fight domestic violence and support survivors.
Do you have access to a purple qaspeq and want to join with us? Send your name and picture, with arms outstretched, to firstname.lastname@example.org!
