We're speaking out about sexual violence against immigrant and farmworker women. Please join us.

Thousands of female farmworkers cultivate, harvest and pack the fruits and vegetables we enjoy when we sit down to our daily meals. Many of these women are at great risk for sexual violence due to their status as immigrants and various other social and economic factors. In a world in which all women are vulnerable to violence and harassment, immigrant women -- whether documented or undocumented -- are especially at risk.

We think it's time to speak out about that.

On April 8th, a community of activists and artists are coming together to bring "The Bandana Project" to Chicago. This presentation and creative workshop will feature a keynote address by New York Times notable author Ana Castillo, and a live musical performance by indie rock phenom Michelle Anthony. Other featured speakers will include Monica Ramirez, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Ezperanza project, Maritza Reyes of Chicago's Mujeres Latinas en Accion, and The Voices and Faces Project founder Anne K. Ream. Complimentary lunch will be served, and reservations are required. Please RSVP.

Friday, April 8th 12 - 3 pm

The Bandana Project will be the final event in the Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art exhibition programming series, co-created by the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women & Gender in the Arts & Media, Rape Victim Advocates and The Voices and Faces Project.

Songs that create change? That's music to our ears.

Bandana Project performer Michelle Anthony is one of 17 artists and bands featured on our first musical cd to benefit survivors of sexual violence,The Voices and Faces Project, Volume One. Virgin Records calls our cd a "Who's who of today's hottest indie rock artists." We call it a great way to support an important cause. Hear the Public Radio piece on music, social movements and The Voices and Faces Project, Volume One. It's a great way to preview tracks from our album!
One step at a time, one story at a time, The Voices and Faces Project is working to change minds, hearts and public policies. We need your support to continue our work.

Gilt is Good: our April 11th fundraiser.
Aaaah, the delicious taste of supporting a good cause. On April 11th, restaurant and bar-of-the moment Gilt is hosting a benefit dinner for The Voices and Faces Project. Taste the creations of the executive chef, and enjoy vintage cocktails handcrafted just for us, and just for the night. We've been fans of this uber-chic restaurant since it opened. But they really won us over when the team at Gilt expressed their heartfelt commitment to helping us raise awareness of - and funds to support - victims of sexual violence. Please join us for what promises to be a very special night.
