Our February Spotlight features the Pearls of Purpose Youth Empowerment Brunch, created by Angela Stanton, founder of The Purpose Connection. The organization’s mission is to support exceptional women who have had the power to survive, the determination to endure, and the boldness to inspire.
The Purpose Connection
According to Angela Stanton, The Purpose Connection is a group of women who support exceptional women. With regularly scheduled “connection” meetings including the upcoming brunch, women get together “to talk about the issues that most people stay silent on”. She was inspired to start The Purpose Connection by her lifelong desire to do something to help girls and young women. Although Angela has been working with youth in the Atlanta community for over 12 years, this will be the first year for the brunch.
