Stride Against Violence 2011

Sunday, October 02, 2011


Thank you! Over 200 of you joined us for the 2011 Stride Against Violence on Sunday, October 2 in Lincoln Park. The day was filled with food, music, fun, and most of all a shared commitment to ending violence against women and children.

Together, we raised over $44,441!

Every dollar you raised and every step you took was in solidarity with the survivors we serve and countless other women around the world who experience domestic violence. Because of your support, the women who come to Apna Ghar (Our Home) will have a safe place to live as they rebuild their lives, be able to attend counseling sessions to help them overcome the emotional scars of violence, and have access to attorneys and advocates who help them navigate the legal system in order to protect themselves from their abusers.

On behalf of Apna Ghar, we thank you for your dedication to creating a vibrant, healthy community for all.

In partnership,
