It is summer! School is out. We have celebrated this year’s graduates. We have earnestly planted gardens and are eagerly planning vacation time. Most of us are looking forward to some type of leisure, rest, and relaxation.
However, we are also reminded every day that domestic violence and sexual assault never take a vacation. In our nation every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten; domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women. Growing numbers of men and boys are finding the courage to speak out about abuses they too have experienced. This is an unacceptable reality and it is our obligation to change it! Project Woman has been changing the story for survivors for over forty years.
I ask that you consider joining us as a “story-changer” by making a contribution today! Help us to provide the safe place, the support and the process, for those who experience abuse and violence, to begin to write new pages in their story. A new story filled with courage, hope and a vision, for today and tomorrow, as a Survivor!
On behalf of all of the survivors, past and present, for who Project Woman has been a refuge, thank you for your support.
Sincerely and In Peace,
Laura Baxter, Executive Director, Project Woman
