Our member Destiny Arturet had a busy summer, below. This list doesn't even include all of the other projects she participated in!
On May 12, Destiny and her dear friend Alisha Acquaye hosted their second Sister Circle Brunch, which is a space for women of color to come together to talk about issues that matter to us over delicious food.
Volume I was dedicated to self-care, and had a meditation session led by Nia Aisha Calloway.
Volume II was dedicated to our mothers and mother figures. They had incredible sponsors including Glossier, Meow Meow Tweet, ColourPop and Soap Chérie!
On May 25, Destiny and her close friend Shaylyn Berlew hosted their 6th monthly political letter-writing party. SEEING RED is an initiative to get our friends and communities more politically involved on a regular basis. They gather once a month to write letters to our representatives about the state of our union's most pressing issues. Since SEEING RED's inception in December, Destiny and her team raised over $1,000 dollars for different beneficiaries and sent over 350 letters to our representatives across the country!
Womanologues: A Storytelling Evening, Volume II took place on June 11! Hosted by Base DWTN, Womanologues: A Storytelling Evening was a gathering of women from all spaces to share moments, journeys, and experiences with our friends, family, community and loved ones.
The event fundraised close to $1,000 for Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. The organization informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.
