Mother’s Day March – Hope Rises Up
May 7 @ 1:00 pm
Hope Rises Up is hosting an upcoming Mother’s Day March on Saturday, May 7 at 1pm, continuing with their annual tradition of sourcing compassion and resources for the benefit of mamas and the people they love who have been impacted by violence, tragedy, and all manners of injustice.
The organization will be collecting donations this year on behalf of two organizations. Women for Women International, which invests in women survivors of war and conflict, providing them with social and economic skills to transform their own lives. They are also supporting National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, which works to end violence against American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian women by lifting up the collective voice of grassroots advocates and offering culturally grounded resources, technical assistance and training, and policy development to strengthen tribal sovereignty.
The 2.23 mile route will start and end at the HVRSD Administration building, at 425 South Main Street in Pennington.All marchers are encouraged to invite friends and family to sponsor their walk. Register here to walk, or sponsor a walker here. (Yes, you may sponsor yourself!)
