WJN E Newsletter Special June 2022

WJN Launches Online Store: ECHO. This initiative came about during lockdown when the Healing from Within (HFW) Program was adapted to and delivered online to the girls in the Blacktown community. Hence the inspiration for the name, E.C.H.O. which encapsulates the essence of the program – Empower + Create + Heal Online. Profits from the sale of these products will go directly to women and girls and enable them to receive support from the Women’s Justice Network.
