YWCA will hold its annual Leader Luncheon, Sept. 23, 2016. The keynote speaker will be Brenda Myers-Powell. Brenda Myers-Powell was born in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Chicago and at age fourteen escaped an abusive home life only to fall into a traumatic world of prostitution. During her 25 years as a prostitute Brenda experienced violence, drugs, kidnapping and more, yet was able to emerge as an advocate dedicated to helping others change their lives and live their dreams. Brenda's story was documented in "Dreamcatcher", which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015.
