Come Celebrate BJM’s 10th Anniversary!

2018 is a very special year for Because Justice Matters, and they are throwing a party to celebrate. 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 BJM's new mission statement“Because Justice Matters builds pathways to brighter futures for women and girls in urban communities.”

In addition to a live band, dancing, and catered refreshments with hosted beer and wine, BJM proud to showcase newly choreographed 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 a brand-new video!

This is a celebration of the many lives that have been touched through the work of BJM. Starting in San Francisco’s Tenderloin in 2008 with the 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.

Your support, together with other faithful BJM donors, partners, advocates, and volunteers, literally lights their way. So get your tickets now and get ready to celebrate on Thursday, May 31st.

This vibrant event takes place in the versatile SOMArts Cultural Center and Theater, enlivened by local artists, and women-led businesses.
