A local artist, Dale Fast, spent time during quarantine photographing some of the beautiful doors in the neighborhood and donated his work to help us end the cycle of violence and help families feel safe.
This year has proven to be a year unlike any other. All of our lives have changed. We have all experienced challenges we probably never imagined. For victims of domestic violence, finding ways to take that first step, or continued steps, towards healing, can be especially hard during a pandemic. Many are not safe in their own homes (1more than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) will experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime). Stay-at-home mandates and lockdown orders across the country, and the world, have contributed to an increase in domestic violence.
We at AND have been steadfastly serving the needs of those in our community who have needed help for the last nine years, and we have continued to do so virtually throughout these last few months. Our clients have expressed that our level of service and dedication to those experiencing domestic violence during this time has surpassed their expectations. Many in our community need help now more than ever.
Your purchase of this poster will help break the cycle of violence and help families feel safe in their homes. Please consider buying a poster or making a general donation to support our critical work.
Posters are only available for order through October 15, 2020. Printing will take place in early October with pick-up and delivery available in mid October. More information will be provided on how to receive your posters in early October.
