Elizabeth Freeman Center Launches Rise Together for Safety and Justice

PITTSFIELD, Mass — Elizabeth Freeman Center (EFC) announced the launch of "Rise Together for Safety and Justice," an evolution of their annual Third Thursday Walk a Mile fundraiser. 
Like the previous 10 years, EFC will continue to hold its annual event in September, soliciting the support and participation of local businesses, organizations, and individuals to help raise awareness and support for the work its staff, board and volunteers do every day in domestic and sexual violence prevention and response.
"While our fundraiser theme has changed, our vision remains the same. We envision our community free from domestic and sexual violence in which all people live in safety, with dignity and justice," Executive Director Janis Broderick said. "We have been so grateful for the support of our annual fundraisers that grew each year. We hope that you will continue to support Elizabeth Freeman Center and Rise Together with us."
Rise Together will continue to be a family-friendly, community event, gathering together (as much as public health advisories allow) to walk, march, stroll, dance, and move together against domestic and sexual violence and for safety and justice. The safety of the community is EFC's priority. Like last year, walks will be held throughout Berkshire County for increased accessibility and due to COVID-19 precautions.
