Women of Vision Orange County is pleased to announce this year’s Faces of Change Dinner featuring local San Clemente author Kim Yim and her co author Shayne Moore. The dinner and fundraiser will be held on Sunday, May 4th at the Island Hotel Newport Beach. Doors will open at 4 pm for a spectacular silent auction with dinner and speakers to follow.
“We are thrilled to have both authors of the book, Refuse to Do Nothing as our keynote speakers,” said Melissa Johnson, Orange County co-chair. “These young, dynamic women have a passion for abolishing modern day slavery.”
In Refuse to Do Nothing, “abolitionist Mamas” Shayne Moore http://www.shaynemore.com and Kimberly Yim [email protected] share their stories of coming to terms with the power available to them in their normal, everyday lives to illuminate the shadows where those who traffic in people hide. The women compel corporations to fight slavery in how their products are made, they motivate politicians to fight for human dignity and they mobilize friends and strangers to fight slavery here in California, throughout the nation and throughout the world.
