Meet and Greet with Sarah Symons and Necklace Reveal
Be sure to stop by the Cathedral Bookstore while you're enjoying Christmas in the Cathedral District. Author and founder of Her Future Coalition (HFC), Sarah Symons will be in the bookstore from 5:30 - 8 p.m. with handcrafted jewelry. The mission of HFC is to provide shelter, education and employment to survivors of gender violence and human trafficking. Since 2010, HFC has been training survivors in goldsmithing and jewelry design. The nonprofit trains and employs women in three locations in India. In addition, they have a training center in Thailand that is independently run by the women themselves. These jewelers are breaking gender barriers as some of South Asia's first women goldsmiths. Sarah and her team have designed a special Angels in Action necklace that will be revealed at this pop-up shop. All proceeds from jewelry purchases go directly to Her Future Coalition.
