LIPSTICK Ladies held their second annual Beauty Day on August 11th at Princey’s Hair Salon in Dorchester.  More than 200 women and girls heard our LIPSTICK message about empowering women, took part in our Iron Pipeline demonstrations, and met and mingled with like minded women and girls.  They were also treated to makeovers, eyebrow waxing, massages, lash extensions and more.  They learned how to stop the flow of crime guns and signed LIPSTICK pledges vowing not to buy, hide or hold guns for someone else.  That’s beauty inside and out!

We also presented Beacon Awards to our LIPSTICK Ladies and other valued supporters who have made an outstanding contribution to our work.  Awardees include:
