Women's History Month Expo

Hundreds gathered at the Erie County library to celebrated Women’s History Month. This year, the theme was “celebrating women of character, courage, and commitment”. Keynote speakers representing human trafficking task forces and Opportunity Centers were highlighted to promote the importance of awareness of female issues and the strengthening of the gender.

In addition to keynote speakers, the library was lined with tables hosted by various women’s rights and support groups eager to share their message to attendees, build partnerships with similar organizations, and simply gain more brand recognition in the community. Organizations included Zonta International, a group focused on education for women as well as saying no to domestic violence, the Family Justice Center, who provides support for women and their children who are in at-risk environments, and United Hands of Hope House, a non-profit working to bring the first safe house to domestic survivors of human trafficking in Western New York.

The Master of Ceremonies for the event was Eileen Buckley, WBFO Radio Assistant News Director and special guests included county executive Mark Poloncarz and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
