Mujeres de Paz Annual Awards Dinner

Mujeres de Paz Annual Awards Dinner

Friday, May 20, 2016

40 years ago a group of trailblazing volunteers launched an organization to respond to the needs of Latinas impacted by sexual violence, establishing the first bilingual hotline in Los Angeles County. Today, ELAWC is a thriving comprehensive agency, working regionally and nationally to deliver programs and services that resonate culturally, are focused on building healthy communities, and grounded in best practices.

Join us for an exquisite evening of dining, dancing, and more as we honor others and celebrate this important 40-year milestone.
