With nearly one in three women reporting abuse at some time in their lives, domestic violence is likely to affect almost every workplace.

Domestic violence is not an issue that stays at home.

Resource Fairs & Booths

As WEAVE’s name has become increasingly familiar in the community, requests for our presence at fairs has increased as well. We are grateful that so many organizations value WEAVE’s participation. Unfortunately, this also means that we are unable to fill all of the requests that we receive. WEAVE’s agreement to participate is based on the information and availability of staff. Materials, brochures, emergency cards, etc., will be available for pick-up for fairs even if WEAVE is unable to attend.

To request a WEAVE representative at your resource fair, please contact Brenna at 916.319.4915 or at blammerding@weaveinc.org to request WEAVE’s participation in your resource fair. To help us better accommodate your request, please submit a request well in advance of your chosen date.
