The 2016 iPledge Campaign Press Conference will be announced soon!

The 2015 iPledge Campaign press conference on October 8th in LOVE Park was one of the best-attended iPledge events yet. We couldn't have done it without all of the supporters who showed up to help us honor Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Philadelphia.

We welcomed terrific guest speakers and performers including: 

  • Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison
  • Ladiez of Zeal Step Team, Of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. 

We also honored Dr. Arthur Evans, Commissioner, Dept. of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services, with the Patricia Fox Trailblazer Award for his leadership in creating a coordinated community response to domestic violence.

All in all, the 2015 press conference stirred attendees to action, and we are so thankful to the many people and organiztions who supported this event - including the community partners who were on hand with vital resources and information!

If you missed the press conference, it's not too late to get involved. You can download the iPledge Toolkit here and get a head start for iPledge 2016!
