BENEFITING: NSPIRE OUTREACH INC
2014 has been a tumultuous year for the literary community. Rocked by numerous allegations of physical, sexual, and emotional assault against a number of well-known male writers, the literary community as a whole has been given the difficult job of moving forward beyond these allegations toward a future that is both safer for the women within it and more receptive to the voices of victims and survivors.
It is our sincerest hope to begin to right the wrongs of the violence committed by these men by spreading awareness of the prevalence of violence against women in the U.S. and by honoring these men's victims by successfully raising funds to benefit victims nationwide.
All funds received will be donated to HOPE HOUSE (http://hope4dv.org/#/welcome), an organization that aids women and children in rebuilding their lives after escaping situations of domestic violence. It is a solemn note to remember that the abuse committed by these men is in no way an isolated incident. Every year, more than 5 million women are victimized by their partners, and 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Many do not survive.
Please join us in our efforts to declare abuse of any kind unacceptable. Your donation will help victims nationwide reclaim their lives from the horrors inflicted upon them by men like those who have been outed in our community. Let’s let no victim go silent any longer.
