Community Solutions play celebrates women in history

Community Solutions, the largest nonprofit human services agency in southern Santa Clara County, will celebrate strong women in history with its production of Historias de Mi Madre IV: A Feminist Anthology. The bilingual play explores the role of women during important historical events.

During the 2009-10 fiscal year, Community Solutions provided services to 716 domestic violence victims, 150 sexual assault survivors and five victims of human trafficking. Services include emergency confidential shelter, legal advocacy, court accompaniment, peer counseling, case management, safety planning, and resource and referral.

“This year, our goal is to highlight the strength, courage and determination inherent in all women,” stated Rosa Revuelta, Sexual Assault and Prevention Services Manager for Community Solutions. “We want to honor and celebrate not just famous women in history, but the female heroes all around us.”

The play will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 6, at the Gavilan College Theatre, 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd.

A $10 donation may be made at the door but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Due to mature content, the play may not be appropriate for children. For information regarding Historias de Mi Madre IV, call (408) 776-6294.
