Raise your voice against domestic violence with WomenSafe
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but victims of domestic violence using WomenSafe’s free, lifesaving resources are in need all throughout the year. To spread awareness and raise funds for survivors, WomenSafe Inc. will host its first “Raise Your Voice” event on October 8, 2022 from 3–6 pm at the Chardon Square in Chardon. The event will raise awareness about domestic violence and generate vital funds needed to support survivors of domestic violence.
As a nonprofit organization, WomenSafe relies on community donations to meet the everyday needs of the men, women and children served all throughout northeast Ohio. Whether in the 24-hour emergency shelter or transitioning back into the community, WomenSafe gives individuals access to essential services and high need items when they need them.
“My team and I are so excited to bring the community together for a day of family fun, while spreading awareness and raising our voices to put an end to domestic violence,” said Angel Burton, development director.
Raise Your Voice is a family-friendly outing and activities include live music by “The Queen Bees,” karaoke, crafts, and the Chardon Library bookmobile. Admission is free and no RSVP is required to attend. At the event, WomenSafe will be selling exclusive T-shirts for $25, also available for sale online.
