EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
I am fundraising for my home county's current campaign against domestic violence by raising funds to help women break free of financial abuse in relationships where they experience violence and control.
If we have no funds to leave on our own, we have no other choice.
I unfortunately experienced partner abuse growing up and relied heavily on my the support of my friends and family to empower me to disrupt this cycle.
Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime. One in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. More than 4 million women experience physical assault and rape by their partners. Between 21-60% of victims of intimate partner violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from the abuse. A 2013 report found that transgender survivors were 3.9 times more likely to face discrimination due to intimate partner violence and 1.5 times more likely to experience partner violence in public spaces.
Please help us provide resources for those to leave these situations by donating any contribution.
Much love, Lynaya
