BENEFITING: ALLIANCE FOR COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATIONS
ORGANIZER: ALLIANCE FOR COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATIONS
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge 2015
No one deserves to be treated as less than another person. No one deserves to be hurt to an extent that scars them not only physically but mentally as well. How can we spread awareness, how can we be change agents in a society where change happens easily for easy things, but takes much longer to change the things that truly matter?
Why do I advocate for domestic violence survivors? Because I am one. Since the worst relationship of my life, I have been driven to make a career out of my passion for prevention. My relationship was one that I survived, not one that I suffer from. I want to stir up feelings of empowerment and resilience in other survivors, letting them know that they can and will get through whatever situation they are experiencing. Through organizations like Purple Purse, we can ensure that survivors have a support system, feel empowered, and move forward with freedom.
