This Thursday, Feb. 16th, we will unite with the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium, Futures Without Violence, city leaders, and elected officials to unveil this billboard! Please join us for a press conference at 3pm Thursday, Feb. 16th on Harrison Street between 9th and 10th Streets, at the intersection of Dore Alley. Together, we’ll stand shoulder to shoulder as a community in support of survivors of domestic violence.
With our anti-domestic violence allies, La Casa successfully raised $4,000 – before the clock stopped ticking – to raise a loud and clear voice articulating that San Francisco is a safe place to reach out for and receive help.
But don’t stop now. Make a contribution here. If we raise another $2,500, we will raise a second billboard – in Spanish! A second critical step toward insuring that ALL victims and survivors of domestic violence hear the message: La violencia doméstica NUNCA es un asunto privado.
Through a San Francisco-based startup called LoudSauce, La Casa turned to the Internet – to YOU – and to “crowdfunding” to raise money for the billboards, which will go up in San Francisco. Donate $25, $50, $75 or $100 to reach our new $6,500 goal! $4,000 is already raised…. Help us spread the word even further!
The press conference, called “Domestic Violence is San Francisco’s Concern,” rejects Sherriff Mirkarimi’s statement that domestic violence is “a private matter, a family matter.” It boldly says that San Francisco will not rewind the clock. That domestic violence is a serious issue. That together, we can counteract the paucity of San Francisco public officials making a stand or taking action to correct the public perception that San Francisco has a cavalier attitude toward domestic violence.
Take a stand. Make a contribution.
