Muhammad Ali Center Welcomes Margeaux Gray as Its Next Daughters of Greatness Speaker

(May 13, 2016)...

Gray will speak on Friday, June 3rd

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (May 13, 2016) — The Muhammad Ali Center is proud to announce its upcoming Daughters of Greatness speaker: Margeaux Gray. Gray will speak at the Center on Friday, June 3rd. The event will begin with a hot breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and the program will follow from 9:00-10:00 a.m.

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.

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.

Tickets are $20 for Ali Center members, $25 for non-members, and $15 for students with I.D.s. Tables of eight and 10 are also available. Seating is limited. Reservations are available here or over the phone at 502.992.5341.
