Speak Out Against Domestic Violence
One in three women in the U.S. will become a victim of abuse or partner violence in her life, and it is estimated some 15 million children witness violence in their families each year. To help end this devastating cycle, the Avon Foundation launched Speak Out Against Domestic Violence in 2004 to raise awareness and funds and launch special efforts to increase the understanding and implementation of laws aimed at stopping violence. Through the end of 2009, in the U.S. alone, we have awarded more than $12 million to over 400 domestic violence organizations for awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs.
