A Donation at any Level Will Make an Extraordinary Difference in the Life of a Survivor
Funds raised will support global grantees of the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women and Futures Without Violence’s work with domestic and sexual violence prevention groups in the United States, with an emphasis on organizations that serve and support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
These organizations support frontline responders to domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and other forms of violence who help:
· Prevent further abuse, by reaching survivors who are in danger when they must shelter in place with an abuser, and connecting them to help.
· Support children and adult survivors in partnership with domestic violence and rape crisis centers.
· Help survivors heal from trauma and rebuild their emotional and financial lives after abuse.
