BENEFITING: Rose Brooks Center, Inc.
The Purple Purse is symbolic of why some survivors stay in an abusive relationship (financial) for so long. The #WhyiStayed movement also represents other abusive realities for survivors, such as isolation from friends and family, fear of leaving pets behind, they promised they would change, shame, and fear of being killed, hurt, or losing their job, family, friends, kids, etc., etc.
Domestic violence isn't rare. It's common. And we see their faces and hear their voices and stories every day - and then we help them with emergency shelter and an on-site pet shelter for their pets, connect them with a health provider in our on-site health clinic, job placement, and more! It's not easy. It takes incredible strength. But they do it! That is why your support is so important, so Rose Brooks can help them go from #WhyiStayed to #WhyiLeft.
