The Umbrella Spring Gala will feature a silent auction, raffle, and short program. During the program portion of the event, we will hear from voices of our participants who will share the impact Umbrella has had on them. The event will offer ample opportunity for mingling and networking over heavy appetizers, beer and wine.
Umbrella’s new mission is to cultivate a Northeast Kingdom where all people thrive free from abuse and oppression. We believe that oppression and the systemic abuse of power is at the root of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, teen dating violence, human trafficking, as well as violence related to gender or sexual orientation – which in total we characterize as gender based violence. We seek to embody a world where those who have been disempowered by poverty, discrimination and other obstacles are able to live peaceful, self-directed lives.
