Join us as we launch Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Philadelphia with our special 10th Anniversary edition of iPledge! 

October 4, 2017

Noon to 1 pm

Philadelphia City Hall courtyard

iPledge is Women Against Abuse's public awarness campaign that calls on everyday Philadelphians to speak out when they see or hear domestic violence in the community. The pledge is more than 3,800 signatures strong - and counting!

For the 2017 press conference, we're thrilled to honor Mayor James Kenney and key members of his administration for their leadership in implementing Shared Safety: Philadelphia's revolutionary new approach to relational violence!

Now, more than ever, it’s crucial that advocates raise their voice on behalf of survivors of domestic violence. We hope you'll join us for our 2017 iPledge Campaign!
