THE STORY:

YWCA of the National Capital Area is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Its programs challenge women and girls to take charge of their health, economic stability and overall well-being. 

We want to use THIS PURPLE PURSE CHALLENGE to raise $5000 to support our financial empowerment programming. Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women. Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, yet financial abuse happens in 98% of all cases and is one of the most powerful ways to control a victim.

Financial abuse is just as effective in controlling an abuse victim as a lock and key - a secret prison no one speaks out about. If her credit has been ruined, she can't get an apartment. If her abuser constantly harasses her at work, she can lose her job. And, crushing debt run up by an abuser means it could take a survivor and her children decades to fully recover. 

We support the Allstate Foundation's work to give women the financial tools to become #FreeToWalk - please join us by donating today and telling your friends about the #PurplePurseChallenge. 

All donations of $10 or more will enter you into our drawing for the 2016 Limited Edition Kerry Washington Purple Purse!
