EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2014
Isn't it time to take a stand to drive out domestic violence? Not just for the high profile celebrity football star's family, but for the many people coping day-to-day with the destructive influence that domestic abuse has on their quality of life and that of their family members.
The Chicago Metropolitan Batterered Women's Network is leading the way in four critical areas:
- Being the voice on the phone when a victim of domestic abouse calls the Illinois Domestic Violence Helpline;
- Training Network members who through their agencies are on the frontlines of helping victims;
- Advocating for our victims in how our laws can serve us better to protect them from the ongoing trauma caused by an abusive situation; and
- Monitoring how consistently and effectively victims are treated by our court system when seeking protection from their abusers.
This is an opportunity to do something today; your monies go directly to help the Network continue to expand its programs and reach others facing abusive situations. Together, with your support, we can make a difference!
