Handbags of Hope

Handbags of Hope took place on October 13 at the LASD Youth Activities League in Los Angeles. The California Women’s Law Center is grateful to everyone who participated in the 2018 Handbags of Hope event which collected more than 1,100 bags in Los Angeles and thousands more across the country. CWLC has been a proud participant of this event since its inception four years ago and, as always, our Board members and supporters came through with incredibly generous donations. Handbags of Hope collects and donates purses filled with personal care items and a gift card to victims of domestic violence in twenty states. CWLC thanks Rita Hall, the co-founder of Handbags of Hope, for her indefatigable commitment to victims of violence. 

Thanks to our amazing Board members and supporters, CWLC collected nearly 100 stuffed handbags that will be distributed to domestic violence shelters in Los Angeles.
