Brewing Hope: Rising up to 2020

This year, Healing to Action's annual special event is going virtual! Join us Thursday, September 17 at 7 p.m. for Brewing Hope: Rising Up to 2020 to honor HTA’s survivor leaders spearheading the dismantling gender-based violence during this global pandemic, and support Healing to Action to continue this critical work.

We have an amazing experience planned for this year's event that includes an artistic presentation by HTA leaders and a reading by Blaxican Poet, artivist and author Leslé Honoré, all of which will be facilitated by our emcee, Marta Jean.

Those who register for the VIP after-party kicking off at 7:30 p.m. will receive a gift pack with a selection of Hopewell Brewing Company beer, a cocktail kit created by Ronnie Bertelloti (with mezcal generously donated by Alex Jandernoa of CNI Brands) and a snack mix from All Together Now.

Our online auction is open!! Feel free to browse the fantastic items our volunteers have put together for you:

Stay tuned for more! We'll be dropping our raffle items next week and we're really excited about them.

Our story
You make this movement possible

This pandemic has made the work of survivor-led community transformation much more difficult.

Our leaders were hit the hardest by COVID-19. Many are part-time or freelance workers, who already struggled to make ends meet.  As caregivers for children, elders, and sick family members without affordable healthcare or an economic safety net, they struggled to safeguard the health and economic survival of entire communities.

And yet, generosity, fierceness, and self-determination abounds

Leaders have been virtually meeting with decision-makers and building deep alliances with youth, other caregivers, and educators to achieve victories for our first grassroots campaign, SexEd Works. We also have had the privilege of welcoming 16 new survivor-leaders through our leadership program, Healing Generations, who will use their tools and skills to transform the root causes of gender-based violence in their communities. 

There is so much more to celebrate than there is space here to share. We look forward to sharing more with you all and celebrating this amazing work that is possible because of you.
