People of Life Annual Benefit Reception

October 27, 2023 @ 6:30 pm


Please join us on Friday, October 27, 2023 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, MI for the People of Life Annual Benefit Reception. Come and experience Stories of Hope, a program created to help pastors minister to their people—many of whom have been affected by abortion—with truth, empathy, and love. The program includes prayer, fellowship, an empowering presentation, moving testimonies of hope, and the highlighting of community resources. We believe you will be inspired to share what you receive as we enjoy time together. There will be something to inspire and equip everyone! For more information, please call Tina at (313) 212-1326 or e-mail [email protected]. Click here to download and print a flyer.

Additionally, she has worked with women to see the beauty that can come from the most challenging times in their lives as they embrace themselves and others. Through these practices she has helped those who have often felt silenced and isolated to find their voice and to build community. Jasmine’s life truly began to experience transformation as she found the courage to share her own story. Through this process she began to find freedom and healing as she embraced the pieces of herself that she had long kept hidden. Currently, Jasmine educates youth as a U.S. History teacher at Lansing Christian School and empowers the community through her work at Right to Life of Michigan.
