Greetings!

February has been an exciting month of accomplishments and advocacy for My Sister's Place. First and foremost, we are excited to share the completion of a fully integrated Spanish website with you today, making My Sister's Place the first and only domestic violence organization in DC to create and maintain a complete Spanish website . We invite to read more about this exciting development below!

In addition, MSP's leadership has been busy raising awareness on the local airwaves. This past Sunday, our Director of Programs Chandra Robinson joined M2M's Executive Director Lauren Feliz-Durishin on 94.7 FM's Fresh Perspective to highlight domestic violence, MSP's services, and M2M's upcoming concert benefiting My Sister's Place on March 10th. Listen to the 30 minute interview here , and read about all of our March events below.

Staff have also been actively advocating. Our outreach team launched a social media campaign #NopeNotUs to raise awareness for National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Help us raise awareness and spread resources by following us on Facebook and Twitter , and sharing our campaign posts!

Lastly, during V-Day, we saw local businesses and organizations join us in raising support and awareness. Lyft chose MSP as the recipient of proceeds from their Valentine's Day event, and V-Day East of the River raised upwards of $2,500 for MSP with their moving performance of the Vagina Monologues and other community events . Lastly, Pierce Atwood completed a fundraising drive with their employees, and presented MSP with a $2000 check this month. We are continually grateful for the support of our community partners, who are committed to ending domestic violence.

We look forward to more accomplishments this year with support from you, our community partners, and our network of supporters.

Warmly,
The My Sister's Place Team
