I have written about A Step Up and the wonderful work that they do before, here and here.

This is a group of five women who decided to do something to make a difference. First they research non-profits and choose one in need of a little spotlight. Then they invite a group of women for a house party with the dual purpose of socializing and donating to a good cause. The food and drink are donated by generous local merchants so that all money raised goes to the spotlighted non-profit. This time it will be a morning coffee as they highlight My Life My Choice – hope to see you there!

What is My Life My Choice?

Through comprehensive outreach, My Life My Choice is reaching more than 200 girls annually in the Greater Boston area and hundreds more in cities across the United States.  The organization works to end sexual exploitation through prevention, training, victim support and mentoring.  My Life My Choice is fighting exploitation by harnessing girls resilience, strength and outrage.
