An Event with a Social Impact
This year, the #VUHRDANR will feature a social impact project benefiting Dawn's Place. Dawn's Place is a residential, 501(c) 3 non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Dawn's Place works to improve the lives of women trapped by, or at risk for, Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) by providing housing, trauma recovery services, vocational training and other services. Dawn's Place also raises awareness of CSE via education, prevention, public policy reform and community collaborations. Learn more about Dawn's Place here.
During the #VUHRDANR, guests will take part in a project to create items that will be donated to Dawn's Place. We know that our students and guests join us each year to create connections with one another and learn something that they can take back to their own organizations. This year, we are also excited to provide our guests an opportunity to do something more that can create an impact in our community.
We hope to see all of you in April at the #VUHRDANR2018!
