DAUGHTERS OF GREATNESS: Margeaux Gray

June 3, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Throughout the year, the Daughters of Greatness breakfast series invites prominent women engaged in social philanthropy, activism, and pursuits of justice to share their stories with the Louisville community. The Daughters of Greatness series provides a place for dialogue and discussion on current issues of justice, community engagement, and social movements within the Louisville area and beyond.

Join the Ali Center in welcoming this month’s Daughter of Greatness, Margeaux Gray.

Gray and Junebug

Margeaux Gray is an Executive Committee member of the National Survivor Network and is on the Executive Board of MENTARI, USA. She is a member of the Louisville, Kentucky Human Trafficking Task Force and PATH Coalition of Kentucky. She also serves as an Advisory Board Member for TO THE MARKET. Margeaux has transcended her injustice as a victim of child abuse which encompassed child sex trafficking. Today she advocates against all forms of abuse, including human trafficking. Additionally, Margeaux is a champion for holistic trauma informed care for victims and survivors. She mentors at-risk youth, speaks publicly, and consults with various organizations and providers on improving victim services in the healthcare and social service fields. In 2015 Margeaux was featured in New York New Abolitionist’s “Who Are They” portrait exhibition and book which highlights 21st century abolitionists, women and men committed to ending human trafficking. As an artist who is visually impaired, Margeaux’s work incorporates found objects which other people might consider trash. It’s a symbol that people whom our society might disregard—among them victims of abuse, human trafficking, and those with disabilities—remain creatures of value and beauty.

A hot breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. The program will follow from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Seating is limited. Tickets are $20 for Ali Center Members, $25 for non-Members, $15 for students. Tables of 8 and 10 also available.
