YWCA Spokane Thanks Local Officers and Detectives For Improving The Lives of Domestic Violence Survivors At Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfast
On Thursday, August 23, 2018, 8:00am – 9:30am, YWCA Spokane will hold their 5th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfast at YWCA Spokane, 930 N Monroe St, Spokane, WA 99201.
Each year local officers and detectives are nominated based on their professionalism, compassion, and contributions that have had a positive and lasting impact on the lives of survivors of domestic violence. Chosen through a selection process by the staff at YWCA Spokane, award honorees will be disclosed during the breakfast celebration.
YWCA Spokane is proud to honor the vital work of local Spokane law enforcement who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support survivors of domestic violence and promote healthy and safe relationships.
“We understand that responding to a domestic violence call is one of the most dangerous calls an officer responds to,” says Ashley Ceresa, YWCA Spokane Director of Legal Services. “We are honored to acknowledge that our work at YWCA is stronger due to our partnership with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and the Spokane Police Department.”
COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER
Reducing family trauma and violence has been selected as Spokane’s top community concern. Domestic Violence is the number one call to law enforcement in Spokane County. YWCA Spokane collaborates with community organizations, businesses, and local, state, and federal government agencies and programs in order to educate our community, end the silence with domestic violence, and create a climate of accountability. YWCA invites individuals and organizations to join them on their mission to address this problem, which affects our families, our community, and our economic health.
YWCA Spokane would like to express sincere gratitude to staff members, law enforcement, volunteers, and to valued sponsors who are making this event possible: Hello Sugar, Hooked on Photography by Nicole, Indaba Coffee Roasters, Couple of Chefs Catering, and Event Rents.
Join YWCA Spokane in marching for the rights and equality of all people! Members of our organization will be marching to show our support of promoting peace, justice, dignity, and freedom for all.
Along with marching, our Community Education and Outreach Coordinator, Nicole Nimens, along with other YWCA Spokane advocates will be present to teach about our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and creating a safe and healthy community for all people. We will have materials for people of all age groups, and are happy to provide any resources needed. Stop by our booth and speak with an advocate about the ways you can help end violence in our community, about teaching kiddos principles of healthy relationships, or simply to learn more about our mission!
