NATIONAL BRAVE DAY
Sometimes just a flutter of encouragement comes in the form of timely guidance from one woman to another. Other times, it’s provided through the coordinated, thoughtful efforts of those who identified someone in need. Women are empowering women. On the fourth Friday in September, National BRAVE Day honors women who lift each other up, rescue each other and make each other BRAVE.
Despite varied experiences and backgrounds, women come together across generations to support each other. Whether it’s a momentary reprieve over a cup of coffee during a hectic day or a well-written letter of recommendation for a job, these small tokens strengthen a woman who may have undergone unspoken tragedy or struggles. The opportunities to empower sisters, friends, family, even a stranger are limitless. On National BRAVE Day, the goal is to seek out tangible ways to encourage women to keep moving forward and to be BRAVE.
