The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) believes survivors deserve safety all year round!
Our 13th annual Domestic Violence Counts Report showed that in a 24-hour period, more than 74,000 adults and children reached out to their local domestic violence program for support. However, in the same day, there were more than 9,000 unmet requests due to lack of resources.
We must work together to ensure that victims and survivors of domestic violence have the resources they need to rebuild their lives. Please consider donating to support our work to create survivor-centered federal public policy, transform local and state systems, and bring awareness to the barriers between survivors and safety.
Here are a few ways you can support survivors before the year is over:
START A FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER Creating a fundraiser in support of NNEDV is an easy way to get your friends and family involved in our cause, and it helps make a world of difference for survivors of domestic violence. If you need any help getting started on your fundraiser, use our toolkit.
More survivors and their family can go to sleep with security and safety if we foster a national commitment to give survivors the support they deserve. A donation to NNEDV helps our work of changing the way society responds to domestic violence.
We need a #VAWA4All! Since its passage in 1994, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) has transformed our nation’s response to domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. Every five years, the United States has the opportunity to build upon VAWA’s successes and evolve to meet survivors’ changing needs through reauthorization. Take action today, and urge your Senators to pass a VAWA reauthorization!
