December 2017 Newsletter


Dear friends,

With immense gratitude to the 98% of Black women in Alabama who voted against racism and sexual violence this week, and the survivors of the #MeToo movement who broke their silence to create change, we reflect on the hard-won victories of 2017. This is what is possible when marginalized survivors lead. This is where real transformation begins. Every year, thousands of survivors turn to us to share their stories of abuse, and VIP partners with each of them to begin their path towards healing and freedom. We are humbled and deeply grateful to be part of a survivor-led movement to end gender-based violence. Thanks for being part of this journey with us.

With love and hope,

Violence Intervention Program, Inc.
