We have entered a challenging time in our history. The issue of relational violence is gaining momentum as a foundational issue to the health of our society, yet federal funding for organizations like ours that support survivors of violent relationships is in danger. Women Against Abuse is not immune to this threat. However, we are fully mobilized to advocate to preserve these life-saving services. In this newsletter, you can learn about ways to get involved!
In the months since our last newsletter, we have been recognized for our pioneering work with
Shared Safety by a prestigious global prize hosted by the
University of Pennsylvania and The Wharton School; we've traveled to
Harrisburg to advocate for measures that protect survivors and promote safe communities; we have honored Philadelphia's talented female chefs while raising funds to support our life-saving services; and we've organized not one, but two ways for supporters like you to raise your voice against violence and stand with survivors.
Relational violence is getting the attention of local and state governments, and there's no turning back. Join us as we raise our voices against violence!
