Empower Luncheon 2018 @ Hilton Vancouver
Sep 13 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Traci Cole – Keynote Speaker

Our annual Empower Luncheon offers an opportunity to meet and engage with the community while supporting the life-changing services of YWCA Clark County. This year, we’re excited to present Traci Cole as our keynote speaker.

Traci was raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently lives in Vancouver, WA. Like many in our community, she was once a silent survivor of sexual assault. Traci has since found her voice, and will share her inspiring story at our luncheon on September 13th.

Traci’s journey offers an important perspective on healing and community that you won’t want to miss. We hope you can join us this September as we welcome her to the stage.
