Resilience iAM Movement

That's the thing about resilience, it's the strength you have through fear...” - Elishia.


Elishia’s story of courage and resilience fuels her artistic movement designed to shed light on taboo topics and issues. This year, she is focused on the launch of her RESILIENCE iAM Gala. The theme of this black tie event will be the promotion of human equality and the campaign to end violence against women.


Occurring on Saturday September 23 @ 6 pm, this event promises a night of celebration filled with live music, dancing, and a silent auction. Most importantly, it gives you a chance to be part of a greater movement that focuses on empowering women and survivors.


Need another reason to attend? The star of the event will be the riveting debut of the short documentary ‘iAM’ which guarantees to be a powerfully transformative and inspiring film. The very best part of the event? All proceeds go towards the Resilience iAM Fund (RIA Fund) which provides financial support for women fleeing immediate circumstances of violence.
