Pat Mitchell to Serve As Honorary Chair of 2023 International Saprea Gala in Atlanta
Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated producer named as honorary chair of the 2023 Saprea Gala at the Atlanta Braves Stadium Truist Park
The nonprofit's second annual Saprea Gala is focused on raising funds to support child sexual abuse healing and prevention. The gala will be held in the Delta SKY360° Club and Truist Rooms located on the field level of the Braves Stadium.
"We are incredibly honored that Pat Mitchell will be part of our annual gala," said Saprea Managing Director Chris Yadon. "She has championed the issues of women and girls her entire career and is now lending her voice to the issue of child sexual abuse.:
Throughout her career as a journalist, Emmy-winning producer and pioneering executive, Mitchell broke new ground for women, elevating women's stories and ideas. She continues that mission as the co-founder of ConnectedWomenLeaders, a cohort of global leaders committed to collective problem solving, focused currently on a women-led climate justice campaign to sustain a habitable planet.
She serves on many nonprofit boards, including Sundance Institute, The Skoll Foundation, Participant Media, Woodruff Arts Center, and CARE"s global advisory board–and is founding member of the VDAY movement to end violence against women and girls.
"We are living in dangerous times for women and girls, and the first steps to change this reality is to speak the truth even when silence is a safer option; to speak out against injustice when we experience it or witness it; to stand up for those who aren't represented and cannot speak for themselves, and to show up for each other," said Mitchell.
Saprea provides healing retreats and support groups for survivors, and prevention resources for parents and caregivers, all free of charge.
