Tech FMLA (Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance) announces the 7th annual community production of “The Vagina Monologues” for 2014 in Lubbock!
The Vagina Monologues is used as the centerpiece of V-Day: A Global Activist Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls. It is based on real women’s stories so it allows women who hear the stories to know that they are not alone in their own experience. It helps people who have experienced violence heal. It inspires people – women AND men – to get involved in V Day’s efforts to stop violence. It removes the shame often associated with the word “vagina” and the vagina itself and instead celebrates the word, celebrates women.
This year we are proudly raising funds for the Women’s Protective Services (WPS). Women’s Protective Services of Lubbock, Inc. (WPS) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization specializing in advocacy for women, men and children who have experienced domestic violence. WPS has been serving Lubbock TX and the surrounding communities since 1978. Women’s Protective Services is a community based program supported by volunteers. The services provided at WPS are free and confidential. Services are available without regard to race, sex, handicap, national origin, color, religion, sexual orientation, or income.

Hello Lubbock! Women’s Protective Services is collecting Market Street Bonus Stickers from now until March 11, 2014.
