Celebrating Success is a powerful and inspirational evening, bringing together over 400 individuals and businesses from Greater Boston to support survivors of domestic violence. Join us for a cocktail reception, auction, and dinner program.

This year, our program features the premiere of the documentary play:  No More Secrets, Survivor Voices from The Second Step, curated by Playwright/Director Lisa Rafferty, and based on the book No More Secrets: Healing from Domestic Violence.This powerful book was written by women in our narrative healing group here at The Second Step to educate, inspire, and offer hope to survivors, families and communities.

We hope you can join us to support families, right here in our community, through this event.
