I am raising money this month to help FreeFrom, an incredible organization working to end domestic violence, win $100,000 from the Allstate Foundation.
FreeFrom was founded to fill a gap: there are no resources readily available to survivors of domestic violence to help them build long-term safety for themselves and their children.
Here are a few things they are working on:
They are currently working with 30 survivors of domestic violence in 3 cities to build their own small businesses and achieve financial independence through self-employment. 100% of their clients make a profit in the first month of their businesses being operational. None of their clients have returned to their abuser. In 2018, they want to expand our program to serve 180 survivors in 5 cities. Let's help the do this!
They are building an online self-help compensation tool to help survivors across the country win economic justice. Survivors will be able to learn what their compensation options are (e.g. small claims court, criminal restitution, victims of crime funding, civil suit) and how to pursue them in their state.
They are building a program to help survivors repair their credit through financial coaching, credit-building loans, and policy reform.
Thank you for supporting my campaign, FreeFrom, and survivors everywhere.
