PWCL seeks folks of all kinds to support and create PWCL’s annual gala and auction and lead Team Celebration! Last year, PWCL raised over $40,000 through community giving to support the programs that serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence and promote community dialogue on the dynamics of interpersonal violence and its relationship to other forms of violence in our society. Team members are encouraged to attend portions of PWCL’s Basic Advocacy Training to learn more about the organization.
We have a dynamite team leading this year’s endeavor. Please get in touch with Barbara Wynne, Community Organizer, for ways to plug in: Barbara@pwcl.org or 503.232.4176
