On October 6th, a diverse and philanthropic group of Atlanta professionals, advocates, elected officials and social gatherers will assemble to pledge their generosity and ongoing support to a worthy cause at the 2018 Still Standing & Stepping Out, The Purple Affair – a benefit event that celebrates survivors of Domestic Violence and honors the community leaders, supporters, and advocates who serve them.
This year’s event will take place at the beautiful Century Ballroom inside the Atlanta Marriott Century Center. Our Purple Affair emcees include FOX 5 News Reporter George Franco and Emmy Award Winning Television Host, Aurea McGarry. The Survivor Walk Fashion Show will be hosted by Yamma Brown Alexander, domestic violence advocate and daughter of the late James Brown (Godfather of Soul).
Riding the waves of previous years vastly successful and generously sponsored Purple Affair, this year’s event is expected to be yet another night to remember. The 2018 edition will treat guests to light fare, live entertainment, special guest appearances, awards presentations and an exciting fashion show in which survivors of abuse will showcase various style trends on the runway.
Proceeds will benefit The Still Standing Alliance's Domestic Violence Programs

As I reminisce over the past 7 years since I founded the Still Standing Alliance, I am overwhelmed at the accomplishments that have manifested. What began as a desire to help other women, like myself, who struggled with rebuilding their lives after abuse, evolved into an incredible network of domestic violence survivors, advocates, and supporters. They have all joined forces with The Still Standing Alliance crusading to save lives, empower, and work towards ending the cycle of abuse. My mission was to ensure that victims and survivors understand that they are never alone.
On a grand scale of things, there is a global community effort dedicated to sharing our victories, advocating for us, and working together to end this epidemic. The vision of the Still Standing Alliance will always be to continue to make a difference in the lives of Domestic Violence victims, and with your on-going support, the improvements will continuously flow.
I want to thank our supporters for making our mission and vision possible. Your commitment to helping victims of Domestic Violence through donations and volunteering, in yours, and other communities, is sincerely appreciated.
Each year, The Still Standing Alliance continues to bring awareness, advocate and work towards preventing Domestic Violence in our community through our empowerment programs, workshops, and trainings. Because of these efforts, we have seen many lives changed for the better. Together, we can fulfill our mission and vision for Domestic Violence victims, survivors, and their families across the world.
With Love and Gratitude,
