Tea & Tonic

October 4, 2019 | Fairmont Grand Del Mar

Center for Community Solutions presents its 20th Annual Tea & Tonic, featuring international humanitarian and media host Zainab Salbi, who will serve as the celebrity keynote speaker. As the founder of Women for Women International, a grassroots humanitarian and development organization dedicated to serving women survivors of wars, Salbi has helped more than 480,000 marginalized women rebuild their lives in eight conflict zones. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, CCS was started in 1969 on the campus of San Diego State University as the first Women’s Studies Department in the U.S. The organization created an “underground railroad” of private homes helping women and children escape domestic violence. CCS has since expanded to provide a wide variety of prevention and intervention services to eliminate societal conditions that condone and perpetuate relationship and sexual violence, and to promote safety, justice, and healing for those impacted by these crimes. 858.693.2369, shancock@ccssd.org, ccssd.org/tea-tonic-2019
