While enjoying a wonderful evening of music with two of the most talented artists in the industry today, you will be supporting The Still Standing Alliance.
Angie Stone and Calvin Richardson's music is a lot about loving women and treating them right. Their hit duet "More than a Woman" will have you rocking and singing along. Whether you are visiting in town for the BIG GAME or local, this concert will start your BIG GAME event weekend off just right as you become a part of Angie Stone's world and the Calvin Richardson Experience for a night.
Thanks to supporters like you, an amazing Board of Directors, and strategic community alliances, The Still Standing Alliance was able to pull off a productive year of providing domestic violence advocacy, awareness, and prevention services on a local and national level.
We kicked our first quarter with our National Stalking Awareness Month Campaign, Human Trafficking Awareness Day at the GA State Capitol, and Crime Victims’ Rights Day at the State Capitol. During Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (February), we partnered with Cobb County Schools and Partnership Against Domestic Violence by providing Teen Dating Violence Awareness Workshops and participating in panel discussions.
The second quarter consisted of supporting and advocating on behalf of equal rights for crime victims. Some of our team members participated in a Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Training with the Fulton County Domestic Violence Taskforce. Our Community Outreach Team closed out the quarter by participating in a community awareness by sharing information about domestic violence and passing out domestic violence survivor safety plans.
During the third quarter, our Survivor Empowerment Program hosted a Financial Empowerment Seminar, that focused on rebuilding finances after abuse. We also focused on community partnerships, as well as local and national domestic violence advocacy initiatives.
We kicked off the fourth quarter with our annual Purple Affair in which we celebrate survivors of domestic violence and honor the community leaders who serve them. Our social media campaign team launched the #MenStandingUp campaign where we encouraged men to step up and support the find against domestic violence.
We closed out the year with our annual Holiday Adopt A Family Program in which we provided gifts to families in need by partnering with local businesses and churches.
Although we received many awards and recognitions throughout the year, our biggest reward is being able to serve the community in an effort to end domestic violence.
We are thankful to our team, supporters, and community partners for making 2018 a successful year. We look forward to serving with you in 2019.
Happy New Year!
The Still Standing Alliance Team
