This is a long-overdue post about an event that Earth Equity Advisors was very proud to sponsor – By Leesa Sluder
“Sexual violence is much more widespread than we knew, and this movement is supporting people coming forward and getting help. It permeates across economic, gender, race and sexual orientation distinctions, meaning there is no prediction of who will be impacted.”
Tarana is just one person (and cannot carry the full responsibility alone)—as she did in Asheville, she is showcasing the long standing organizations in each community that can provide the resources to support victims. She is a charismatic , straight talking, no nonsense woman leading the charge against a societal problem.
There was a fund raiser for Our Voice at the end of the speech, and within five minutes almost $5000 was raised. It was a collective enthusiasm from the audience to support this program, and to thank them for bringing Tarana to Asheville.
