Quote for Publication: “Over the past 40 years, Women Against Abuse has made tremendous progress on behalf of survivors of domestic violence and their children. We’ve grown from a part-time hotline operating from the basement of a women’s center to Philadelphia’s leading comprehensive domestic violence service provider,” said Jeannine L. Lisitski, Executive Director & President. “In that time, we have created safety for tens of thousands of people. However, there is still much work to be done until families across our City can live in peaceful homes. We hope the community will support our life-saving work by attending Dish It Up!”
