Nail Day

SIGN UP HERE.

*A mandatory orientation from 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm is required for all new volunteers.

Nail Day is the second Saturday of every month, all year.  Our monthly women’s outreach is much more than just a brief break from the streets; it has become a place where community is built.  

We foster long-term relationships and connect with each person while we massage their hands and paint their nails. Women also enjoy quiet fellowship at the Art Table over coffee and refreshments. All of these connection points provide the opportunity to listen to their stories and their hopes for the future. Nail Day is a place where we offer support, loving conversation and prayer in a safe environment. 

Whether you are new to Nail Day or have been doing it for a while, we invite you to come and share in our love for these women.

Join BJM for an elegant evening as we celebrate 10 years of positive transformation in the lives of women and girls in this city. This work has been accomplished through the faithful engagement of volunteers, staff members, donors, and partners since 2008! LEGACY will be the perfect opportunity to honor our supporters, reflect on what has been accomplished together, and share strategic vision for dynamic expansion!

You and your guests will enjoy live music, delicious cuisine, hosted beverages, newly choregraphed performances by our dance program girls, stories of personal transformation, an inspiring message from our founder, Ruthie Kim and another very special keynote speaker, Eugene Cho!

Born to immigrant parents in Korea and later raised here in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood, he has a deep affection for this city. As a Pastor, Speaker, Author and Founder of the non-profit One Days Wages, he shares our passion for justice. Eugene is a dynamic communicator, a prophetic voice to this generation and a huge advocate for women.

Perhaps most importantly, on this historic ten-year anniversary, you will have the opportunity to invest in the life-giving work of Because Justice Matters. Seating is limited, so please reserve your tickets today.

If you, your family, community group, company, church or organization would like to partner with BJM as a sponsor for this event, please contact malia@becausejusticematters.org.

The theme reflects our new mission statement: “Because Justice Matters builds pathways to brighter futures for women and girlsin urban communities.”

In addition to a live band, dancing, and catered refreshments with hosted beer and wine, we’re proud to showcase newly choregraphed performances by BJM dance students. Throughout the evening, you’ll experience uplifting stories, and artful presentations which highlight hope and restoration, including the premiere of our brand-new video!
