, you're invited to attend our annual sleep out and participate in our Candlelight Ceremony at 7:00pm.

Though the temperatures are expected to drop below freezing in the Nation's Capital Friday night, tough souls will face the elements and sleep outside on the city streets to raise awareness of the plight of victims and survivors of domestic and universal violence.


"We will brave the cold to bring awareness to domestic violence, sexual assault and other types of violence. said William Kellibrew, president of The William Kellibrew Foundation, a resource for people and institutions committed to breaking the cycle of violence and poverty.

"The holidays are joyful for many of us, but in homes scarred by domestic violence they can be a very frightening."


Started in 2008, the Sleep Out was a response to the murder of Tiffany Gates, whose killer was convicted of stabbing her to death as she frantically called 911 for help.  Back then, Kellibrew teamed up with his sister, Manyka Gaither, family members, friends, and partners to show resolve and solidarity on the issue of domestic violence by sleeping outside.


In 2010, special guests included Congressman John Lewis; Virginia Tech survivor Colin Goddard; National Coalition on Black Civic Participation's president, Melanie L. Campbell; WKF president William Kellibrew and many others.

Thanks to the WKF donors, we are able to restore the lives of victims and survivors of violence. Show your support today!
