Our Goals Are

Special Event: Joy as an Act of Resistance.

Activist and author Brenda Myers-Powell, the co-founder of Dreamcatcher Foundation and a longstanding World Without Exploitation (WorldWE) ally, has a new memoir out. We can’t wait to celebrate it! Leaving Breezy Street, a powerful account of Brenda’s life in and journey out of the sex trade, has been praised by Peabody Award-winning journalist Alex Kotlowitz as “Remarkable…Myers-Powell emerges on the other side not only intact but as an inspiration," and hailed by Publisher’s Weekly as a “page turner from start to finish.”  

On Thursday, October 21st, 7pm Eastern, join World Without Exploitation and The Voices and Faces Project  for “Joy as an Act of Resistance,” a virtual celebration and conversation between Brenda and author and WorldWE Founding Co-Chair Anne K. Ream. During their conversation Brenda and Anne will discuss the inspiration for Brenda’s new memoir, how our pain can give us purpose, and why joy just might be the ultimate act of resistance. Don’t miss what we know will be an inspiring conversation and celebration of Brenda’s beautiful, important new book. See you on October 21!
