2014 SHEROES Rise
We did it! Amazing V-day One Billion Rising
SHEROES United is a Non-Profit (501c3 EIN 45-5391069 effective 5/17/2012) that identifies Women Role Models. Women that have been victims in their lives and are now Victorious and living their AUTHENTIC life.
SHEROES United addresses 5 Pillars. Many of these issues come full circle.
Domestic Violence - includes mental, verbal and physical abuse of members in a family or living in the same household. We want to show families that this is an internal problem and can be fixed with love and compassion. If not fixed it lingers into the next generation. The Children become abusers because this is how they were taught.
Violence Against Women - Sex Trafficking, Disfiguration, Slavery, Rape, Murder
Women Veterans - their life after serving our country. Are they being treated fairly? Are they being looked after? Do they have the resources that they need to live a full and prosperous life? We protect our protectors.
Foster Care & Adoption - We address this from all perspectives and are working on the National Level with Atlanta being one of our sister cities.
Teen Advocacy - This includes anti-bullying, teaching positive self image, the value of each human being regardless of their size, color, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc...
As SHEROES United Grows it will tackle more issues. But these are the issues that we are addressing and many of these issues overlap. Children in the Foster Care System are often sold into sex slavery. Women in the Military have been abused or raped and had nobody to turn to.
NOTE: SHEROES United is all about embracing and loving the Women and the Men that love them. We do not want to go out and fight against violence or take any kind of a stand against Crime. WE ARE HERE to be a landing place for those that need and want to have a place to talk with like-minded people that understand and want to hear the stories - this is a place of finding your inner light and having a support system that walks beside you.
Highlights from our 4th Annual SHERO Salute to Women Veterans 2014 Parade
SHEROES United hosts or attends many events a year.
SHERO: A female hero; a woman that displays strong heroic traits under tremendous pressure and is triumphant over her circumstances. A Shero is a woman who is an active giver, an example of what is possible, and a brilliant inspiration to people of all ages. We believe that SHEROES are women that have been through extraordinary experiences and have proven to be “Sheroic” in those efforts. SHEROES are Victors NOT Victims!!!
Sometimes all it takes is ONE Voice -
We are an "Army for CHANGE"
Your Voice matters!!!
