YWCA Purple Purse Event – October 24, 2011

Posted on May 4th, 2012 by Luciep

TAG was thrilled to be invited by June Wiley, Regional Director of the Seattle King Snohomish YWCA (and TAG’s original mentor) to present our Friends & Family Workshop to a standing-room-only crowd and support the YWCA’s amazing work to protect and provide for domestic violence victims.

YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish joined with YWCA USA and The Allstate Foundation on October 24 to raise awareness about domestic violence by participating in a special event that recognized Domestic Violence Awareness month.

Called the Purple Purse TweetUp, held at YWCA Greenbridge Learning Center, the event [presented by the Thrivers Action Group] demonstrated to participants how they can approach and talk to a family member, friend or co-worker who they suspect of is a victim of domestic violence and learn what they can do about it.

More than 100 attended. In response, The Allstate Foundation donated $10,000 to the YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish to fund programs that support domestic violence victims.
