I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe!
Just wanted to jump into your Inbox with some news about this month's focus. In honor of Women's/Womxn's History Month, I will be donating a percentage of all sales to the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, "1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence. Further, 1 in 7 women and 1 in 25 men have been injured by an intimate partner." Intimate partner violence can take on a number of abusive forms, including (but not limited to):
- Emotional Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Technological Abuse
- Financial Abuse
- Abuse of Immigration Status
One of my favorite sayings, and something I am becoming more deliberate about in my own life is that "Social Justice starts at home." The issue of domestic violence is deeply personal to me. I would like to do my part in helping to eradicate it. That is why I am asking you to join me in doing what you can to support education, policy and more that will help our next generation leaders love in peace.
Thank you in advance for your purchase! Sending you and your loved ones well wishes for love, justice and liberation in your homes and communities.
