About Sisters on the Runway
Sisters on the Runway was founded in 2005 by Elizabeth Eddy, Gabriela Graham and Juliana Colangelo- as a way to create awareness about the often overlooked issue of domestic violence and raise funds for its victims. Since then, the organization has raised funds for domestic violence shelters and the project has found a home in many schools on the East Coast, including Penn State, UMass Amherst and Parsons New School of Design. This initiative has gained numerous supporters throughout the years and its founders hope to continue to work in creating awareness about Domestic Violence.
