Voices Against Violence
Oct 1 – Oct 31 all-day
Voices Against Violence @ Virtual

Each October, YWCA Dayton recognizes the strength and resilience of domestic violence survivors at a special fundraising event to support YWCA Dayton’s domestic violence shelter and support services, including its 24-hour crisis hotline. Formerly called the YWomen Breakfast, it has been refreshed (and expanded!) as the Voices Against Violence Breakfast and the Voices Against Violence Lunch to better reflect the platform it provides for both survivors and supporters to be a voice for change.

To ensure community safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event has shifted from a live, in-person occurrence to a month-long online fundraising challenge. As an individual or as a team, be a Voice for survivors by starting your fundraising page today. Exciting prizes will be given to the people, and teams, raising the most funds by the end of October! Sign up to attend a team captain orientation HERE and start your fundraising page now HERE.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
