Get Ready for the Purple Purse Challenge!abc27 WHTM
Starting September 2, you can donate toward Economic Justice for Pennsylvania victims
The Purple Purse symbolizes a ticket to financial independence for a domestic violence victim. Campaigns for Economic Justice such as those Allstate supports are crucial for victims to break away from an abuser, and be able to stay away. Abusers often keep control of their victims by keeping tight control over the family purse strings, sabotaging victims' careers, withholding money and controlling purchases - even of raspberries!
A national fundraising and awareness raising event, the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge benefits local non-profits that help domestic violence victims. Donations made in Pennsylvania will stay in the commonwealth.
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), with support from FISA Foundation and The Heinz Endowments, invites you to join us on September 11, 2014, for A Call To Men: A Call To Action.
We are calling on human service providers, first responders, community and youth leaders, faith leaders, mentors, educators, coaches, health and mental health professionals, activist, students, fathers, grandfathers, uncles, business leaders, male advocates from domestic and sexual violence programs and anyone else that cares about our youth to join Co-Founder and Co-Director of A Call To Men, Tony Porter as he shares an important message about healthy masculinity!
