We are excited to announce
that Sybrina Fulton will be our Keynote Speaker and special guest at the 2016
YWCA Women’s Luncheon on Thursday, April 28th at the Judson F. Williams
Convention Center. With a commitment to ending violence towards children and
building safer communities for all, Sybrina’s message promises to leave a
lasting impact for those who attend. Despite the intense struggle of losing a
child, Sybrina has chosen to dedicate her life to transforming her family
tragedy into positive social change.
Her message not only appeals
to people’s hearts as it relates to children, but is also one of hope and
change, exemplified by her personal experiences and endeavors. As a mother, she
inspires audiences to continuously educate their children about civil rights
and to help them feel accepted as part of an ever changing society.
For over 20 years, El Pasoans
come together to support the YWCA's signature fundraising event. Funds raised
in this single afternoon help support programs that invest in children, strengthen
families, build the community and develop leadership activities in women and
girls while helping them reach their full potential. In 1994, the inaugural
YWCA Women's Luncheon drew more than 600 El Pasoans. Over the years, support
for the event has grown and attendance has surpassed 2,000.
