This is our 3rd Annual Domestic Violence Rally. We are excited that we have had the opportunity and the pleasure to be in front of the Washington Capitol. I hope you will join us this year on October 1, 2021, as we stand in front of the Washington Capitol once again to gather together for survivors since the mandates have been lifted. What we need from our volunteers:

  • We will have volunteers directing traffic.
  • Some Volunteers will be assisting with set up and break down
  • Some will be assisting with Audio and visual
  • Help with the stage set up
  • Some will assist with helping survivors find the location and where best to park
  • Handing out butterflies
  • We are also looking for a marketing specialist to help advertise and also spread awareness to all news channels. We need someone who will call all news, radio, and magazine, get the word out, and arrange interviews for the CEO.
  • WE WILL BE PROVIDING ALL VOLUNTEERS A FLUORESCENT JACKET; WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE WEAR PLAIN WHITE SHIRTS ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT TO HELP DISTINGUISH OUR VOLUNTEERS.
Survivors will be wearing purple, be bringing purple pom-poms, and have their signs.
This is a significant event as we will have speakers and speak up for each survivor who has dealt with the trauma of child abuse, sexual assault, IPV, military abuse and sexual assault, mental abuse, and human & sex trafficking. Let's stand for the forgotten, the abused, and let's not be silenced anymore. As we stand together, let stand for hope and stand for change. #ENOUGHISENOUGH

Mission Statement

Assist with housing and community aid services for women and children affected & inflicted by the issues of Domestic Violence, IPV, and Human & Sexual Trafficking for 6 months. Services we provide Family Advocacy and soon transitional home access

Description

What do we want?

  • Transitional Home

  • Safe Haven

  • Quality housing

  • We want to provide 6-month sustainability and turn around service aid for women and children affected by IPV & DV.

  • Family Advocacy Assistance

    How will this help our communities?‚Äč

  • Due to the number of human trafficking, sex trafficking, and Domestic Violence in Prince William County, we need transitional homes that assist our local area county agencies. Especially our police officers, sheriffs departments, and other county agencies that will alleviate the burden in our community.

  • We want to ensure an extended stay in our transitional home of 6 months rather than the max of 21 days. This will give us time for healthy mental assessment & aid, group psychological help, and on the job training and parental support.

  • Most victims who feel supported and are in a group or getting help from a therapist and are financially stable are more likely not to return to their abuser. And will feel safer rather than those who have no safety of financial or emotional support.
