Leadership Fresno Class 35 proudly unveiled its project – a serene pathway filled with flowers and reflective benches on the Fresno State campus earlier this year. The Pathway of Hope, dedicated to the journey domestic violence and sexual assault survivors must walk, also created a place of healing and reflection for survivors.
Dignitaries like Congressman Jim Costa and advocates like Lisa Casarez, CEO of Angels of Grace were among the speakers who shared stories of personal triumph and advocacy during the lunchtime ceremony.
Prior to the unveiling, Class 35 partnered with Nexstar Broadcasting to run a five-part news series covering various aspects of domestic violence and sexual assault aimed at educating the public and highlighting local resources. The segments ran on during the news and were shared multiple times on social media.
If you’d like to see the Pathway of Hope, you can find it next to the water fountain on the Fresno State campus.
