Louisiana faces staggering challenges in ending domestic violence: Louisiana women are murdered by intimate partners at a rate twice the national average. We have one of the worst gender pay gaps in the nation. More than 1 in 5 girls in Louisiana live in poverty. These facts paint a stark picture, but the Louisiana we know is better than this. We know Louisiana steps up when faced with challenges like these.
That's where the Purple Purse Challenge comes in. If we raise the most funds by October 31st, LCADV will win $100,000 for our economic empowerment efforts. And, the best part is that even if we don't win the grand prize money, we still get to keep the money raised during the campaign.
Your donations will secure a brighter future for domestic violence survivors across Louisiana. Please give today.
