W.A.R.M. (We All Really Matter) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2010 by survivor Stephanie McGraw. W.A.R.M. is dedicated to providing a personal approach to healing by walking with survivors side by side in their journey.

W.A.R.M. is hosting their 10th anniversary with their annual Domestic Violence Panel on Oct. 22 6-8 p.m.

Invited speakers include: Susan L. Taylor, bestselling author and former editor-in-chief of Essence magazine; Marianne Williamson bestselling author, non-profit and political activist; Adrianne Walker, holistic nutritionist certified by American Fitness Professionals & Associates, prana-yoga teacher, certified recovery coach; Queen Afua, holistic health practitioner and wellness coach; and Dr. Cynthia Grace, PHD, clinical psychologist, consultant and author.

McGraw states, “We work to empower women by sharing our own experiences and struggles that move survivors toward their personal journeys of rebuilding, restoration and reconnecting within. We help navigate the front lines and serve those under-resourced, left with little to no aid. We are fierce advocators for a world free of systemic violence. In our work, we foster a sense of community and belonging. Going beyond formalities, we support survivors and our community effectively by cutting through the bureaucracy that too often delays, derails and blocks real help and the care they urgently need.”
