International Women's Day Fundraiser

Celebrate International Women’s Day with REED at our third annual fundraiser for sexually exploited women, Raising Hope. Guests will arrive to music by local jazz artist Monica Siu and hors d’oeuvres and wine, followed by an address by guest speaker Daphne Bramham, Vancouver based award-winning journalist and author.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about REED, to support our work, and to meet others who care about justice and women in our city.  We will highlight one woman and honour her with our third annual REED award, someone who we believe has made an outstanding contribution to resisting exploitation and embracing dignity.

Since 2005 REED has been standing in solidarity and struggle with women who have been sexually exploited and trafficked into the sex industry. We consider it a privilege to share in mutual transformation with women who are surviving the effects of a sexualized and violent culture.
