Role Model Celebration
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$400.00
Join us and celebrate International Women’s Day with Alternatives for Girls (AFG)!
In 1987, AFG began as a community effort to support girls and young women in southwest Detroit. Local residents, clergy, and business leaders came together out of concern with the alarming increases in drug use, homelessness, sex work, and street activity. This group of citizens wanted to do something, and they did just that. They changed the trajectory of the lives of so many who felt lost, alone and afraid, AND with that, a place we know now as Alternatives For Girls.
Today, AFG remains true to its mission as it empowers at-risk girls and young women to thrive after experiencing trauma from homelessness, violence and exploitation in Detroit and its surrounding communities.
In honor of International Women’s Day, join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of extraordinary women in our shared community and the accomplishments of the girls and young women we serve.
The celebration will include an opportunity to bid on various auction items while making an impact.
