“In A Box” Founder, Javier Espinoza to Speak

Remember Javi? If you came to our 2009 Luncheon, you might remember a remarkable young man who told us about a program he started called In A Box supporting women and children who live in our shelter. 5 years later, Javi has gone to college, focused his education on gender studies and violence against women, and has grown his idea into an established program. A past winner of Heart of Marin, he was also featured in a Ted Talk, below is the link. We cant wait to hear from Javi and find out what he is up to!

Watch his Ted Talk Here!

*  The “In A Box Program” provides essential items for women and children living in domestic violence shelters. Through this program items such as underwear, feminine products, non perishable food, clothes, toiletries, educational toys, baby supplies, seasonal gifts and school supplies are packed into big decorated boxes and sent to the shelters.
