Fundraising and Entertaining to Eliminate Violence: FMLAs Host V-Day Events

The UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance hosted a successful run of the Vagina Monologues with close to 1,800 people attending two performances. The group raised $14,000 for a local domestic violence organization. After organizing performances for the past three years, the group has raised a total of $37,000 for programs and organizations dedicated to eliminating violence against women. Great job! With strong publicity and press efforts, the MARSHALL UNIVERSITY (WV) Women’s Studies Student Association, an FMF affiliate, raised consciousness on campus and over $5000 for their local domestic violence shelter. The UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN – MILWAUKEE FMF Affiliate raised $3,000 with their entertaining rendition of the Vagina Monologues. The KUTZTOWN FMLA (PA) raised $6000 and attracted 1600 people with their performances.
