Organized by: Kelli June
EVENT DATE Oct 11, 2014
This fundraiser is important to me because my mother was a victim of domestic violence, we spent 2 years of our lives at a shelter for abused women. I truly did not understand it until I was victim to the same abuse by an ex boyfriend. I would NOT be alive today if it were not for organizations like these.
1-in-4 women will experience some form of domestic violence in her lifetime
1-in-3 teenagers reports knowing someone their age who has been abused by a dating partner
Women continue to be physically injured at higher rates than men; but anyone can be a victim of family violence - women, men & LGBT
Children in homes with domestic violence are at
the greatest risk of transmitting behavior to the next generation - either as abuser or abused
