Freedom Of The Phoenix

MASQUERADE BALL THEMED EVENT
Freedom of the Phoenix is a poetry book written by Chantelle Baker, who took her experiece with domestic violence and used spoken words to illustrate the different emotions she had to overcome to become the woman she is now.
"A woman is more likely to be killed by a male partner (or former partner) than any other person. About 4,000 women die each year due to domestic violence. Of the total domestic violence homicides, about 75% of the victims were killed as they attempted to leave the relationship or after the relationship had ended."
On March 31st we celebrate the essence of LIFE with her book, to those who have gone through it and survived, to the families who sadly have to grieve each day with the loss of a relative to domestic violence.
The book launch is a strictly themed Masquerade Ball.
