Amplifying Women’s Stories in Recovery Advocacy
SAVE THE DATE | IN HONOR OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
The SHE RECOVERS® Foundation invites you to write a new story this March in honor of International Women’s Day.
As women, our stories of recovery are about self-compassion, growth and transformation.
Our stories also provide a key to unlocking healing opportunities for everyone who listens. Together we can smash stigma, break barriers and rewrite the stories for recovering women everywhere to become stories of renewed possibilities, inspiration and hope.
We are honored to redefine recovery through highlighting and amplifying women’s voices in recovery advocacy around the globe at this 2nd annual event.
This year, you will hear from women in Africa, South America, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States and be joined by women all over the globe for a sacred event that honors yOUR story and inspires possibilities for the future of women’s recovery support. You will also join countless ambassadors and supporters from organizations who are all committed to lifting up the voices of women and amplifying the value and power of our collective stories.
The event is free and anyone is welcome. Donations to the SHE RECOVERS Foundation are appreciated!
The goals for the event are to:
- Redefine recovery by bringing awareness to intersecting issues specific to women’s mental health and addiction recovery
- Amplify women’s global voices in recovery advocacy
- Explore holistic and individualized approaches to recovery that embrace multiple pathways and patchworks of recovery
- Highlight organizations supporting women’s recovery on a global scale
- Provide an opportunity for discussion on the value and impact of story and storytelling
