First Day Fundraising Shout Out!
July 14, 2017

Thanks to the brave folks who jumped in to support advocacy against domestic violence. Today was the first day of fundraising and we already  See more
Meghan O'Neil

THE STORY:

As a survivor of Domestic Violence this campaign is truly important to me and my family. It takes abused women, on average 7 times to leave their abuser before they get away for good. When she tries to leave is the most dangerous time in the relationship and a strong support system is key. Many of you know what happened to me when I reported the abuse and I hope that by raising money for the Center Against Domestic Violence, I can help protect other women and empower them to leave before it's too late. 100% of the funds raised go to teach young people about abusive relationships, how to spot them, how to get out of them and how to help friends leave abusers. 


Center Against Domestic Violence wrote -

Through the teen Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) we teach teens to identify signs of abuse, what a healthy relationship looks like and how to teach other teens to do the same. Do you remember what it was like to be a teen? Maybe you still are a teen. Regardless, there's little chance telling parents (guardians, teachers, etc.) anything personal when you are 15. The lack of trust in adults is the biggest barrier to helping teens prevent and/or escape from abuse. This is why we emphasize Peer-to-Peer education about teen dating violence.  We want teens empowering teens. We want them to know they are not alone and they can go to their peers when they are in crises.

Our established Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) is in place at ten high schools citywide. Combined, RAPP teaches 23,000 students a year about healthy, communicative, non-violent relationships and directly counsels over 2,000 teens, individually and in groups. In addition, RAPP coordinators reach out to teachers, parents and community members, to teach warning signs that a teen may be violent or abused.
