October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Did you know that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? And yet society still undervalues women's right to safety. We need to seek solutions, keep the conversation going and remind the world that violence against women is unacceptable.
Soroptimist/LiveYourDream.org is looking for 5,000 people to take the pledge to end domestic violence. Will you be one of them,
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and we need your commitment today.
Domestic violence destroys lives. Beyond physical injuries, survivors may suffer devastating psychological effects including anxiety, PTSD and depression. Because their abuser is often someone dear to them or someone on whom they depend financially, they tend to remain in these dangerous situations far too long and become repeat victims.
FACT: Each year 4.8 MILLION women in the U.S. experience domestic abuse. Every day at least 3 women die from it.
By pledging to end domestic violence, you can make a commitment to educate yourself and others about this problem. By raising awareness, speaking up, helping a friend at risk and acting as an engaged bystander, we can work together to help women live free from violence.

We just love this amazing project where folks make hygiene kits for young women in Figi. These items are not available in many areas and in Figi, young women are often prohibited from attending school if they are not prepared to manage the needs of their monthly cycles. Thank you!!
