About The Organizer

Shelley Argabrite

First, I am a mother passionate about creating equality for future generations and raising awareness concerning sexual violence and domestic abuse. Secondly, I am a community member who has a desire to join this global movement and bring it home to help. I see this as a beautiful beginning for a community prevention effort where everyone can "do" something. Finally, I operate Brite U, Integrative Wellness Services offering a unique blend of Somatic Education to provide ease and promote balance. Other offerings include non-invasive Bodywork-Reflexology, Mind/Body/Spirit group fitness classes through the Nia technique and wellness coaching.

Join us, a growing number of individuals and organizations committed to taking a stand against violence toward women and children.
