Rockaway's Women Receive 'Power Of Knowledge'
If knowledge is power, then 250 of Rockaway's women came away from the "Women of the Rockaways Empowerment Breakfast" last weekend with numerous ways to change their own lives, as well as the lives of their families.
The event, hosted by Councilman James Sanders Jr. and his wife, Andrea, at Public School 105 in Arverne, addressed such areas as health, education and the problem of domestic violence.
"Our goal is to bring valuable information and resources to women and families of the Rockaway community," said the councilman and his wife in a prepared statement.
Among those who spoke at the breakfast was Pastor Kimberly Dethridge of the Bethel A.M.E. Church on Beach 77 Street.
"You are more than someone says you are," Dethridge told the women.
