Sitkans Against Family Violence is super excited to announce a very special spring event! This year's Sitka Rose Awards, evolving from the Honoring Women Celebration hosted by SAFV since 1998, expands to include people of all ages and backgrounds. Nine individuals will be honored from high school age and up. Honorees will be recognized for their extraordinary commitment to SAFV's core values of safety, respect, and community, with three awards per age category.
If someone you know exemplifies these virtues, consider nominating them. You can easily nominate via the button below, sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or making a phone call to 907-747-3483. Remember, there’s no limit to the number of nominations you can submit!
There's more! Our amazing Mel Beadle will be hosting a variety show, featuring the talents of women and LGBTQ2+ performers. If you're a high school student or older and have a passion for the arts — singing, dancing, comedy, music, acting, poetry, or even magic — we invite you to display your talents.
Sign up by clicking the button below or contact Mel at email@example.com for further details. This is a special opportunity to perform and share the stage with other women and queer artists here in Sitka.
