6th Annual Cheyenne Bell Leadership Awards Gala
This year's celebration will honor Norma Hotaling, an extraordinary individual who has strived tirelessly to free those trapped in the underground street economy. In light of her 25 years of work against systems of oppression through her personal commitment to Standing Against Global Exploitation (SAGE), Ms. Hotaling will be our sole honoree.
As the founder of SAGE, Ms. Hotaling has worked side by side with CYWD to end the cycle of abuse, unhealthy behaviors and trauma experienced by exploited adults and children. CYWD and SAGE are unique non-profit organizations that over the years, have served program constituents who come from disadvantaged communities, have lived through broken social services and who fight injustice through community and system engagement, peer exchange and policy advocacy.
With your support, our Cheyenne Bell Leadership Awards Ceremony will pay tribute to the lifetime achievements of Norma Hotaling. Inspiring women, such as Ms. Cheyenne Bell and Ms. Norma Hotaling, are integral to the community because they allow us to remember why we do this work and the tremendous difference it makes for so many families who are struggling to rebuild their lives. Ms. Bell was a longtime community activist and civil rights leader who spent over 10 years as Director of Community Programs at San Francisco's juvenile hall. Her presence is greatly missed. It was her foresight that brought in non-profit organizations such as CYWD and SAGE in an effort to offer hope, educational opportunities and services for at-risk youth in detention. Proceeds from this event will go towards establishing a fund for women and children escaping mental and physical exploitation.
