The guest speaker at this week’s Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club luncheon meeting [Thursday, March 13, 12:15–1:30] will be Dawn Diaz, founder of Milagros Day Worldwide, an organization that helps survivors of domestic violence and people who grew up in abusive households.
Her goal: To empower women around the world to break a cycle that she and her mother both experienced.
Brooklyn Bridge Rotarian Marc Dana reports that Ms. Dias “is a very dear friend of mine, a phenomenal speaker, with a heart of gold, who is dedicated to service. Please put word out to the club so we can have a great turnout!”
News12 covered Milagros’ Mothers Day march across the Brooklyn Bridge last year, interviewing both Ms. Diaz and Mayor deBlazio’s wife, Chirlane Mczray, who is a vociferous supporter of Ms. Diaz’s efforts.
