We have a choice to make: run from the storm, or into it. We choose to run into it and through it.Moment of Truth: Statement of Commitment to Black Lives
To our beloved community,
Domestic violence is skyrocketing during the pandemic. Coronavirus, economic and social upheaval, and our nation’s racial reckoning have all come together to create a “perfect storm.” People like YOU make it possible for domestic violence survivors to make it through the storm.
With your help, WSCADV is getting resources to stabilize thousands of survivor households to avoid homelessness. Together, we’re leading national changes for racial justice, and building community economic resilience. You make it possible to develop new solutions to prevent violence.
Our visionary leadership and pragmatic action looks like:
- Leading a shift from “law and order” to freedom and options for survivors, and co-authoring a national Moment of Truth five-point call to action on racial justice – signed by over 40 domestic violence and sexual assault coalitions;
- Getting over 9,000 protective masks in the hands of domestic violence advocates when COVID hit, and helping them adapt survivor services to the pandemic;
- Securing over $1.4 Million for emergency financial assistance for survivor households and to keep the doors open at domestic violence programs.
