When Fashion, Technology, and Social Justice Convene

This post is in partnership with Verizon.

Earlier this week, I attended #MotoZFashionNight hosted by Verizon at Laurie Solet boutique. It was a special event because it brought women together to celebrate fashion, technology, and social justice. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the Verizon HopeLine program has been committed to domestic violence prevention since 2001. So, Verizon got us all together to talk about HopeLine and the technology that makes it all happen.


Laurie Solet boutique was the perfect setting for #MotoZFashionNight. We enjoyed light bites, wine, and of course, a little shopping. I’ll be sharing a couple of my finds from the boutique in upcoming posts.


While there, we explored the new Moto Z Droid and its cool accessories. The Moto Z is currently the thinnest premium smartphone, and it’s available exclusively to Verizon. This little device is quite powerful and becomes even more so with the addition of accessories called Mods. The phone is a smartypants, too, and connects to Mods without bluetooth. The speaker Mod (barely larger than the phone) especially impressed me by providing music for the entire party. And, it was booming, y’all!

The Moto Z is also available through the HopeLine Program. One of the major efforts of the Verizon HopeLine program is providing wireless phones and service to victims and survivors of domestic violence. This program is so crucial because these phones serve as lifelines by keeping recipients connected to emergency or support services when needed and also to family and friends.


I’m excited to support Verizon’s work around domestic violence. It’s fairly easy too. I’m rounding up a few of my older phones and accessories to donate. Verizon either refurbishes or recycles the phones to benefit HopeLine. Also, since purple is the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I’ll be rocking purple and buying purple. Purchases of purple products at Verizon, like my new mophie power station, benefit Camp Hope America.
