Come Help Us Celebrate BJM’s 10th Anniversary! (Volunteers Needed.)

2018 is a very special year for Because Justice Matters, and we are throwing a party you won’t want to miss. This year’s theme, ILLUMINATE, reminds us of the power of light, which not only drives out darkness, but makes things clear and bright. 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!

We are celebrating the many lives that have been touched through the work of BJM and we're excited to reflect on how much we’ve grown. Starting in San Francisco’s Tenderloin in 2008 with our legacy women’s outreach, “Manicure Mondays,” today, BJM offers a variety of sustainable, life-giving programs which empower women and girls to envision and pursue brighter futures within a caring, faith-based community.
