All proceeds from this event will benefit One Place. which provides coordinated services to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence through a multi disciplinary team of professionals working under one roof. “Maid” does an excellent job conveying what One Place hears every day from victims and survivors: navigating community systems is difficult and further exacerbates the chaos they already face. From Land’s story, it is apparent how important it is to have resources and help at an arm’s reach. This is the reason One Place exists – to make it as simple as possible for a victim or survivor to tell about the abuse and to access needed resources. District Attorney Danny Carr will speak on behalf of One Place’s impact on the community and its importance to women and children in Birmingham and beyond.
Land is an example of relentless hope in the face of adversity. Her writing about economic and social justice, domestic abuse and motherhood has been published in The New York Times. The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Atlantic and more. One Place is extremely happy to welcome Land to Birmingham and stand beside her as she tells a piece of her story.
This event is presented by EBSCO along with other gracious sponsors, including Regions Bank, Altec, Bransfield & Gorrie and Medical Properties Trust.
