Allstate and The Allstate Foundation believe every victim of domestic violence should be: #FreeToWalk. Please help us fundraise for this great cause and join our local 1-mile walk on October 19, 2016.
Why Domestic Violence?
- One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime – that’s more than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined.
- Two-thirds of Americans believe domestic violence is a serious problem, yet just over 1 in 3 have ever talked about it.
- Financial abuse happens in 98% of all cases of domestic violence.
- The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay, leave or return to an abusive relationship is they don’t have the financial resources to break free and live free.
