We Are HER Announces 2021 Retreat; Looking for Support
April 21, 2021
Like many businesses and organizations, we had to pivot when COVID hit last year.
Through our organization We Are HER, several volunteers and I had planned a five-day retreat in Paradise Valley for 15 survivors to attend. The point of the retreat? To help survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault find healing through connection, story sharing, and education about trauma.
One week before we selected the 15 survivors who would be travelling to Montana to attend our retreat, the news of the pandemic broke. We called an emergency board meeting and decided to cancel our retreat.
