District Alliance for Safe Housing Wants You To Wear Denim To End Domestic Violence, and your office could win a FREE cupcake party with The Hey Frase Podcast! If you didn’t hear the podcast last week, we had two very special guests on the show, Leslie’s (Leslie is our digital content creator) sister Cindy who is a domestic violence survivor along with the director of District Alliance for Safe Housing, Koube Ngaaje.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we wanted Cindy and Koube to tell their brave stories around the trauma of domestic violence. Cindy survived it and Koube and her team combat and help those impacted by domestic violence every day. This is where you come in! All month long the Hey Frase Podcast along with you are helping to raise money for DASH. We’re asking that your office participate in ‘Denim Against Domestic Violence’ or #denimagainstdv. Here’s what you need to do:
Join us this month in participating in “Denim Against DV”
- Local businesses choose a day in October to encourage employees to wear any piece of denim and donate $5 to support DASH
- Tell us what day your office will be wearing denim and tag DASH on Facebook or Instagram (@DASH_DC), and use the hashtag #DenimAgainstDV to give your office a chance at winning a surprise appearance by the Hey Frase crew and of course me! We’ll be bringing cupcakes!
Koube went on to tell us that DASH helps survivors in all situations. Men, women, children. DASH is the largest safe-housing provider for survivors of domestic violence and their families in DC. They account for over 50% of the available units and provide over 100,000 safe nights for survivors and their children, yearly, keeping them away from the threat of violence. They also offer affordable housing and emergency financial assistance, ensuring no survivor has to choose between safety or living without a home.
I’m looking forward to seeing you rock your denim and thank you for supporting DASH!
