We started the year off with a bang as our Executive Director Patty Seaman and President, Susan Vigliano were featured on “Good Day PA” on ABC 27 to speak about Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

Peace Promise Benefit Event
In March, we were joined by advocate Kelly Master as the keynote speaker at our annual “For Love and Freedom” Benefit.  Thank you to those who donated to the silent auction and our event sponsors.

In April, our community and generous donors came together for the “Drop of Hope” outreach and GT NOW where we provided care packages to the women whom we serve, many of whom were hit hard by COVID and the tightened restrictions.

In September, we held a COVID-safe outdoor fundraising event featuring products from Change Purse and Soaps by Survivors, both fundraising and economic empowerment arms of Peace Promise.

Fall shopping event
In October, Change Purse opened their first ever virtual store. Both Change Purse and Soaps by Survivors products are available for pick up or shipping. This has always been a dream of ours and it’s finally real. Look for online shopping to resume after the new year.
