Be a Voice for Change through #VoicesAgainstViolence
Women Against Abuse began when a community of volunteers in Philadelphia decided to take action for women in violent relationships in 1976. Since our humble beginnings in the basement of a women’s center 40 years ago, we have been, and always will be, a collaborative community effort that depends on the support of community partners and advocates like you.
In 2017, federal funding for organizations that help survivors of domestic violence is under threat. At Women Against Abuse, we stand with survivors every day by providing life-saving housing, legal, and hotline counseling services, we advocate for lasting policy and system change, and we provide community education to prevent domestic violence. This work is vital to promoting safe, healthy communities, and a reduction in funding would result in reduced services to the people who need our help most. We can't let that happen.
Now more than ever, we need to raise our voices against violence. You can help!
Join Women Against Abuse's #VoicesAgainstViolence campaign to become an advocate in the struggle to end domestic violence. Your support will ensure that our mission continues and our efforts to coordinate a citywide response to relational violence gains momentum.
Here's how you can make a difference:
- Give now. Your gift will ensure survivors and their families have the support they need during and after an abusive relationship.
- Tell your friends. Spread the word! Share the campaign through Facebook, Twitter, email, or text. Download pre-written messages here.
- Create your own page. Set a personal fundraising goal. Invite friends and family to help you make an impact!
- Come to our Advocacy Open House. If you're local, join Women Against Abuse in Philadelphia on Thursday, June 15th to learn about the action steps you can take to protect funding and policies that support survivors. RSVP here.
