This is blog post number one of the Battered and Beautiful non-profit organization and I thought I would use this opportunity to explain what we are about.
This project has been in the works for close to a year now and was really set in motion once I graduated high school. After a couple years fundraising for local women's shelters and anti-human trafficking organizations as a Grapevine High School Young Feminist, I became motivated to start my own distinct organization that continues to fundraise for programs benefitting the battered women of the DFW area, and then some. From this passion, the Battered and Beautiful Organization was created.
With this project, I hope to shed some light on the issues that are affecting the local Grapevine/ DFW metroplex areas as well as offer opportunities to get the community more involved. Whether it means simply passing out flyers for an upcoming fundraiser on Main Street or teaching a yoga class at a women's shelter, I believe everyone has some ability that they can use to help the gender-related issues of the local area.
Teen dating violence, domestic violence and human trafficking are problems that dearly affect Dallas. However, with education, empowerment and action, I think something great can be done.
