Violence Against Women and Children has become a Pandemic! You Can Help Us Prevent & End Domestic Violence!
Did you know Teen Dating Violence has increased 28% in Los Angeles in the last two years, according to the LAPD? Did you know youth of Color, and those from economically challenged communities are the hardest impacted? Did you know October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month?
Since 2009, The Positive Results Corporation has been working with youth, young adults and their families to prevent and end violence and abuse. That's why I'm excited to announce, our 2nd Annual Purple Purse Tea Party and Fundraiser.
The event will be held Sunday, October 22, 2017, at the Museum of African American Art, inside of Macy’s, in the Baldwin Hills Mall, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. We will have 200 women and young ladies, many who are also SURVIVOR'S, who only recently understood that their disfuntional relationships were abusive!
The purpose of our event is to raise awareness about Domestic Violence and Financial Abuse, which affects the most compromised and vulnerable in our community. Given the uncertain economic climate, and the pandemic of violence among youth, it is imperative that we do all we can to address this issue head on. We are raising funds to empower and educate women and girls to make positive life changing choices.
Our Youth Peer Advocacy and Leadership program works with teens and young adults, of all genders, ethniticies and sexual orientations to address violence, abuse and trauma that has affected them, and impacted our community.
We know that violence happens everywhere, all the time. By working with youth and young adults, we give them skills, tools and language to help their peers understand, prevent and ultimately end all forms of violence. We also help them to build their own self-esteem, to grown strong in the knowledge that they are amazing, resilient and are worthy of every good and wonderful thing! We hlep them to understand that the violence they experienced, does not define them, nor are they responsible for the actions of others, thus helping them grow into healthy, positive and violent free people!
We also believe that Men can help us prevent and end abuse! It is important to bring Men into the conversation to educate and engage them to become Allies! We INVITE MEN, AND DO NOT INDICT THEM!
WE CAN NO LONGER WAIT UNTIL SOMEONE IS ABUSED! WE MUST FOCUS ON AWARENESS TO PREVENT ABUSE FROM BEGINNING!
