Did you know that 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime, and that domestic violence is the leading cause of homicide in our community?
I'm currently the Director of Artemis House Region III in Fairfax County, Virginia. We are the ONLY emergency domestic violence shelter in Fairfax County; a county with a population of 1.1 million. Those of you who know me, know that this population is my passion. However, you probably also know that funding is tight and federal policies keep changing.
Whether you are a survivor or want to be an ally to survivors, we need your voice to help raise awareness about this issue that affects far too many women and girls in our community. Silence is Violence - support our cause today!
