1 in 4 women will experience some form of intimate partner violence in her lifetime.
1 in 3 women in the DMV area will experience some form of intimate partner violence in her lifetime.
27% of college women have experienced some unwanted sexual contact.
It's statistics like these that first started my passion for power-based violence. From volunteering in college, to working full time at a direct services non-profit, the realities of power-based violence are never far from my mind.
I am asking you, if these statistics worry you to, let's do something about it! I'm raising money for the organization I work for, JCADA, which provides 100% free and confidential services to victims and survivors of power-based violence 14 years of age and older in the Greater Washington DC community without regard to, well really anything...but to be specific: without regard to race, national origin, ability, background, faith, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or immigration status.
Giving as little as $5 gives JCADA the ability to do things that can immediately help victims and survivors, such as providing safety planning and support through our helpline, or prep for our education and prevention workshops.
I know things are hard for a lot of people right now, but if you give $5 today and share this on your Facebook and 5 of your friends see it, think about the difference we could make together!
So give, join my team of women on a mission, and make a tangible impact in the life of someone suffering today!
