Supporting Domestic Violence Victims
Organized by: Dana Richardson
On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. These numbers are a startling reality at the amount of women and men that experience domestic violence not to mention the sexual assualts that happen behind closed doors and go unreported because of pure fear. Many women sympathize with there attackers to in other words "keep the peace" or to avoid physical abuse, as a means of suffering undue abuse at the hands of there partner (current or former). Alot of women want to get out of these types of relationships but would be left out in the cold because they don't have no where to go,and with limited funding most programs only cater to women with children,So many women are forced to endure abuse because they have no other place to go,and are not financially stable enough to leave. Today we (Empowered Love) are asking for donations to allow us to provide Towels,Wash Clothes,New Undergarments and every day needed necessities to women and or men who have escaped and or left domestic relationships,with your donations this will enable us to help a small amount of women who desperately need help.
