Trailblazers & Torchbearers Celebration
Honoring our History & Shaping Our Future
On October 18, we celebrated a momentous milestone in our history—our 40th anniversary. Founded in 1978 by a group of women who recognized domestic abuse as a community-wide issue, HAWC was a part of the revolutionary grassroots movement to address violence against women. For over forty years, we have fiercely advocated for all survivors, growing and evolving to meet the needs of our North Shore communities.
Our event celebrated the Trailblazers that were instrumental in creating a safe place for survivors on the North Shore, and the Torchbearers who will advance the movement for social justice for all.
