Join BJM for an elegant evening on Friday, September 21st, as we celebrate 10 years of lasting 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 like you since 2008!

For the last decade Because Justice Matters has been loving, empowering and supporting the women of San Francisco. Cups of warm coffee for women trapped in a life of exploitation and violence, small healing groups offering community and friendship, dance classes for girls providing safety and empowerment - and so much more. 

LEGACY is the perfect occasion to honor our community, reflect on what has been accomplished together, and cast dynamic vision for the next decade.
