The Commission for Women of Bossier City hosted its annual Inspiring Women’s Week luncheon today at 11:30 am at the Bossier Civic Center. Inspiring Women’s Week is how the Bossier Parish nonprofit organization raises money to further its mission of empowering women through donations and volunteerism.

Speakers at the event included Kelli Todd, Executive Director of Volunteers for Youth Justice and Alex Person who is Director of Education and Forensic Interviewer at The Gingerbread House Children’s Advocacy Center.

Last year’s IWW fundraising allowed the Commission to present an $11,000 check to the Northwest Louisiana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force Program that fights exploitation of children and human trafficking.

The Commission for Women of Bossier City has been involved with this weeklong event hosted in March of each year since its inception. This event is well-attended by many dignitaries and the community at large, and any profits made from the luncheon are given to assist in addressing domestic violence, human trafficking and other topics that effect women and children in the Shreveport-Bossier area.

The Commission for Women of Bossier City is a non-profit organization that was established on May 29, 1986. The Commission acts as an advocacy agency for women and implements strategies to solve problems facing women today. We aim to encourage confident independence in the women and young ladies we assist.
