(ARA) – Domestic violence is often talked about behind closed doors or never discussed at all. To break the silence, Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino is joining forces with The Allstate Foundation to encourage Americans to Tell a Gal P.A.L. to talk about domestic violence.
Act – Never underestimate how small acts, like listening, can make a big difference.
Learn – Empower yourself with knowledge and resources available to help yourself, or someone you know, out of an abusive relationship.
The Allstate Foundation, in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, developed a Financial Empowerment Curriculum to help victims achieve financial independence. It includes financial tools and information designed to enable survivors of domestic abuse to fully understand their financial circumstances, as well as engage in short-term and long-term planning to accomplish their personal goals.
More information on Tell a Gal P.A.L. and the Financial Empowerment Curriculum is available at www.ClickToEmpower.org. Domestic violence survivors in need of immediate assistance are encouraged to call The National Domestic Violence Hotline, (800) 799-SAFE (800-799-7233).
