Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Candlelight Vigil
YWCA Greater Charleston
1064 Gardner Road, Suite 113, Charleston, South Carolina 29407
JOIN US ON APRIL 7 | You’ve probably heard about human trafficking on the news. Now YWCA and the Gamma Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. invite you to a candlelight vigil to help fight this epidemic!
You’ll learn about the services Doors to Freedom provides to human trafficking victims in the Charleston area, and Kathleen Hays of the Indigenous Women’s Alliance of South Carolina will share the story of Native Americans, who created the #MMIW movement to remember missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in our state. Members of South Carolina tribes will be present as well.
Candles will be provided; just bring yourself and a friend!
Spring Health Benefit – Edisto Indian Free Health Clinic
We invite and encourage you to come out and support the Edisto tribe at their health benefit on April 14. 2018. Proceeds from this benefit go towards maintaining the Edisto Indian Free Clinic.
It is the mission of the EIFC to provide free and/or discounted medical care and medications to residents of this community and the surrounding areas who are ineligible for Medicaid, who are without the financial resources to afford such care, and/or who have no medical insurance. It is our intent to promote the physical health and well-being of all who need our care. It is further intended that this clinic will be a place where the medically needy will be provided preventative measures, patient education, and periodic health maintenance procedures.
