THE STORY:

Survivors Are at the Heart of Our Work!

Through our member programs, we listen deeply to survivors’ needs on a wide variety of issues, including immigration, employment, and reproductive justice--and then we act. We mobilize an entire membership comprising 1,000 advocates, survivors, organizations, and allied groups, and ensure their voices are heard in all of our work, but especially in the halls of the Capitol.

Here’s one story of how that happened:

Time and time again, we heard that simply experiencing domestic violence impeded one’s ability to maintain steady employment. In fact, nearly 40% of survivors reported they were fired or feared being terminated due to domestic violence. Because steady income is key to a survivor’s ability to support themselves and their children, we joined the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center and began the process of passing a landmark bill (SB 400 – Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson) to change this statistic. There were opponents to our bill, but we tenaciously advocated for its passage. Now, under state law, survivors are protected against discrimination or retaliation for requesting accommodations on the safety of their workplace and themselves. Every survivor in California is covered.

Recognizing that our work to promote economic justice for survivors and their families still wasn’t finished, we supported AB 2337 (Assemblywoman Autumn Burke) this year. Just recently signed by the Governor, this bill now helps ensure that survivors know about the protections our coalition worked hard to secure. California employers are now required to inform employees of their job protections, right to time off and accommodations as survivors.

These bills support survivors so they can live up to the goals they set for themselves. They contribute to thriving communities. They help prevent homelessness. And they’re part of an ongoing commitment to pursue economic justice in the effort to end domestic violence. Throughout our work, whether it’s policy, communications, or capacity building, the story is never complete without survivors’ voices.  

Your donation keeps our statewide movement strong, and supports survivor-influenced social change throughout the state. Will you make an investment in a California free from domestic violence? Our goal is to reach $5,000. If just 100 individuals donated $50 each, we could make this happen. And with special bonus incentives offered by the Allstate Foundation, we could even surpass it!

Your donation can earn you some fabulous perks:

  • We're awarding a beautiful purple purse designed by actress Kerry Washington to the individual who makes the biggest donation to the Partnership by October 25th! You can see all donations at the top of the page under our total amount.
  • Contributions to the Partnership of $100 or more will receive our signature Purple Purse Charm. Each charm is attached to a card featuring an inspiring survivor story. Attach your charm to any bag to show your continued support!

If you want to go above and beyond to support the Partnership, we encourage you to donate and join us as a fundraiser! Sign on by clicking the purple “Fundraise for this Community Partner” button on the right, and we’ll follow up with a toolkit to promote our campaign. 

Thank you for your generosity during this Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Everything you do to support the Partnership helps to turn the Golden State Purple in October!
