DV housing first logo draft

As you know, I am passionate about finding ways to infuse our activism with art (and vice versa), which is why I produce videos for non-profits working to address social justice issues in my off hours…

Did you know that domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness for women and children in the US?

Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) has teamed up with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop the Domestic Violence Housing First Project–a project which eliminates lack of housing as a reason why survivors might stay in an abusive relationship.  

Over a three year period, we will produce a series of 14 videos that show how DV Housing First is being implemented and creating lasting change in the lives of survivors and strengthening communities across Washington state.

And I’m so honored that our first video is featured in the Gates Foundation’s blog!  Marie Sauter says in her post, “Watching this video brings tears of awe and gratitude every time.”

One down.  Thirteen to go.
