San Francisco Bay Area Sister Society celebrates 6 years!

On April 5, the San Francisco bay Area Sister Society held our first meeting of 2018. Patelco Credit Union in Pleasanton, California graciously hosted 25 attendees, including our special guest, Sue Mitchell. We took the opportunity at our meeting to celebrate our 6th Anniversary as a Sister Society (the first Sister Society formed)!
In keeping with our goal of education, our meeting also included a guest speaker who led a discussion on Sexual Harassment at the workplace.  We discussed the two definitions of unlawful harassment and what is not harassment, what companies can do in the #MeToo movement to discuss and respond to conduct in violation of their policies, as well as some ideas for how to respond to unwelcome conduct if it happens to you.
The local charity chosen for this meeting was New Day for Children Organization. New Day for Children seeks to recover children caught in the despair of child sex trafficking and to restore their stolen childhoods. In partnership, New Day for Children provides housing, school, medical and mental health care, horse therapy and more. They operate from safe and secure locations in the western United States (in our case, San Leandro, California). Working with law enforcement other faith based community organizations and families themselves, they provide for the needs of American girls ages 10 to 18 and 18+ (in separate programming) suffering from the desperation of human trafficking.  We are pleased to say that our Sister Society members donated $1150.00 to the New Day for Children Organization.
