INGLEWOOD, CA. – Majestic Hearts, a non-profit for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, will celebrate its launch by hosting a fundraising event February 24 with the intent to raise funds for its shelter and counseling programs; its mission is to covert victims into survivors. The event will take place at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (purple carpet and registration opening at 5 p.m.). With 2018’s goal to raise $50K, the event will kick-off the ultimate objective with the enthusiasm of generating $5K.
The launch event will include live performances by saxophonist Keschia Potter, who’s toured with celebrities like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Robin Thicke and Jennifer Hudson and a spoken word performance by artist Estee Marie (E dot Marie). Attendees will learn more about Majestic Hearts and why the organization was started.
“Domestic Violence is not only a National issue, but also an International one. Our duty at Majestic Hearts is to bring awareness to the masses by educating communities. With only a hand-full of DV shelters in Los Angeles County, we strive to offset this shortage by opening multiple shelters throughout the county over the next 10 years,” said Kanishia L. Jackson, Majestic Hearts CEO.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been severely physically abused by an intimate partner (www.ncadv.org) and 5 million children witnessing domestic violence each year in the U.S. (www.cdv.org). Our purpose is to target these demographics and convert these victims into survivors. We accomplish this through education and supportive services.
