Additional Tickets Available for ‘MAID: A Conversation Series and Special Event’

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Wellspring and Business for Good™ recently announced that they are partnering to bring ‘MAID: A Conversation Series and Special Event’ to Universal Preservation Hall on Thursday, May 5. The first 200 tickets released were sold out in days. Due to high demand, additional tickets have been made available to the public. 

Stephanie Land’s memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive, recounts a harrowing saga as a single mom trying to make ends meet for herself and daughter. As her story unfolds, Stephanie’s journey reveals the real culprits of her situation: domestic violence; unmanageable minimum wages; high housing costs; and systems that sometimes create more barriers than solutions. Netflix’s miniseries based on Stephanie’s memoir launched in October 2021 and has become a critically acclaimed global hit, putting a much-needed spotlight on the subject matter. 

Stephanie’s keynote presentation will highlight the story of her own experience and explain significant barriers that many victims of relationship abuse face. 

This event is free for everyone in the community. To sign up today, visit wellspringcares.org/maid.
