On Friday, February 22nd, 2019 at the Hotel Van Zandt in downtown Austin, we’ll be hosting a fundraiser to raise money to hire our first program director. Join us from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm, as we welcome Rev. Becca Stevens, named 2011 White House “Champion of Change,” 2016 CNN Top Ten Hero, and Humanitarian of the Year by the Small Business Council of America. Stevens will be sharing her story along with several graduates of Thistle Farms, a non-profit social enterprise based in Nashville, Tennessee founded by Stevens in 1997.  The speakers will relate how women who have survived sex trafficking, prostitution and addiction deserve a second chance at life, and how love is the most powerful force for change.  Becca Stevens is a national keynote speaker and has been featured in The New York Times, ABC World News, NPR, CNN and other national press. Sponsorships and tickets available now!
