2019 We Are United Luncheon

REGISTER DONATE BECOME A SPONSOR

MAY 8, 2019, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. | CAMELBACK INN
HOSTED BY VALLEY OF THE SUN UNITED WAY'S WOMEN UNITED


YOUR SUPPORT HELPS FUND ENDING HUNGER IN THE CLASSROOM FOR CHILDREN IN NEED.


We Are United, presented by Women United, is our signature event to fund ending children’s hunger initiatives, such as WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks and Breakfast in the Classroom, that ensure every child is well nourished and ready to learn.

In May 2018, our community raised $379,960 at the We Are United luncheon. Your incredible desire to end hunger in the classroom resulted in more kids being able to focus on schoolwork because they had the proper nutrition. And even more were sent home with meals over the weekend so they show up nourished and ready to learn on Monday. We are so grateful.

It is with great excitement that we present American journalist, television presenter, author, and a great example of the impact of women who inspire change, Lisa Ling, as this year’s keynote speaker.

Enjoy a recap of the last three years of We Are United Luncheon events!

LISA LING

Lisa Ling is the executive producer and host of This is Life on CNN. Lisa explores the scourge prescription pill addiction in Utah, the recent influx of women in North Dakota’s boomtown, and a town in the rural Midwest where young men aspire to be priests.

For five seasons prior, Ling executive produced and hosted Our America on OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network. Lisa embedded in a Midwest town ravaged by an onslaught of heroin, got exclusive access inside an anti-gay religious movement, witnessed the manifestation of PTSD in returning veterans of war, and went undercover to investigate the under-age sex trafficking of minors in the nation’s capitol. She has also profiled Americans living beneath the poverty line for the first time and people serving unimaginably lengthy prison sentences for crimes they did not commit.

As the former field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and contributor to ABC News' Nightline and National Geographic's Explorer, Lisa Ling has reported from dozens of countries, covering stories about gang rape in the Congo, bride burning in India, the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, and the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang in Central America, among other issues that are too often ignored.

Lisa got her start in journalism as a correspondent for Channel One News where she covered the civil war in Afghanistan at 21 years of age as well as stories in dozens of countries around the world. She later went on to become a co-host of ABC Daytime's hit show The View, which won its first daytime Emmy during her time at the show.

Lisa is the co-author of Mother, Daughter, Sister, Bride: Rituals of Womanhood and Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home, which she penned with her sister, Laura. She is a co-founder of www.SecretSocietyofWomen.com, and a contributor to www.iVolunteer.org.
