Younger has been on the front lines of some of the most important battles for women’s health, safety, and economic security. She is a tireless advocate and well respected leader with a proven track record of nonprofit management and fundraising. She has a rich history of national leadership that empowers women and believes that women have the answers to positively change communities. During her visit to Roanoke, she will share her insights into how the foundations can mobilize the power of women’s collective giving to continue growing the community so that it works for everyone. The main event, IGNITE CHANGE, at 7:30 pm at the Jefferson Center, Teresa Younger will offer a talk along with an opportunity for questions and response. There also will be a collaborative performance presented by student performers from the region. The goal for the event is to inspire and mobilize women about the power of collective and diverse engagement in building a strong giving community in the Roanoke Valley. This event is free.
