An Opportunity for Transformative Change
Spark the True You, presented in partnership with the Los Angeles County Departments of Military and Veterans Affairs and Department of Mental Health, educates, assists, and activates a growing community of support across Southern California for women in active duty, women veterans, and their families who are looking for ways to be successful and achieve their ultimate physical, spiritual, emotional, mental health and well-being goals.
Additionally, the campaign inspires a movement to normalize the experience of mental illness and other related health issues and breaks through the barriers that continue to hold many women in active duty and veterans back from reaching out for assistance and taking advantage of available resources.
The campaign inludes innovative influencer partnerships with organizations providing promotional support and content development, that fosters opportunities for individuals to take personal actions to spark their truth in their own communities as a benefit to themselves and to their fellow sisters.
The Los Angeles Sparks will work to bridge the gaps within the academic, political, business, healthcare, nonprofit, social service, and alternative therapy spaces by leveraging their close relationships within each sector throughout the duration of the campaign.
