My name is Yolanda Beach-Walton. I am the chief executive officer and founder of Survivors of Domestic Violence Resource Center (SDVRC). SDVRC is a non-profit organization, devoted to making a difference in women’s lives by restoring hope and peace. Our mission is to reduce the incidence and minimize the impact of domestic violence and sexual abuse in our community through education, advocacy and referrals to the most appropriate and effective programs and services within our community. SDVRC aims to educate and raise awareness of the problems of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in order to break cycles of abuse.
I am a very passionate advocate for the victims of domestic violence, a “silent” crime that too often goes unnoticed. A survivor myself, I know firsthand about the fear, anxiety, pain and self-doubt that a victim experiences. I escaped my 20-year marriage of physical and mental abuse and been committed ever since to helping other victims. That’s why I’m working with the cast of the award-winning stage play, "A Change Is Gonna Come,” playing at the THEARC Theater in Washington, DC on April 22 & 23, 2016. Our director and award-winning playwright, Ms. Vickie L. Evans, and the cast of the stage play are “Speaking Out” against domestic violence. We are actually “WALKING On FAITH” to have a successful production.
THIS IS NOT A PAID CAST - WE ARE DRIVEN BY PASSION!
I'm starting this campaign to help us cover all of the expenses of the production. Our cast members are not paid. The funds are needed to cover the cast hotel and travel expenses, visual aids, printing supplies, musicians, stage manager and other necessities. Our goal is $5,000. This money allows us to educate those who are unaware of domestic violence, as well as inspire those who are victims but are afraid to speak out.
Today, we are asking you to become involved by supporting us either by attending the stage play in DC or by making a donation. To support us by attending the event, you may purchase the tickets now at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/award-winning-stage-p....
