Starting as an Intern in Mid-January 2011 for Becky's Fund, I soon gained an understanding of how much Becky's Fund does to prevent Domestic and Dating Violence. Becky Lee is extremely passionate about this cause and it shows in everything she does--from the events Becky's Fund hosts to the individuals Becky Lee helps. From intimate informational gatherings to large scale fashion shows, Becky's Fund is trying to reach out to the public to shed light on this topic, that is rarely discussed. Through awareness, education and support, Becky's Fund is paving the way for other organizations and individuals to join in on the campaign to defeat Domestic Violence.

The Great!

As an intern since the end of January of 2011, I have personally been honored to witness Becky Lee's extraordinary dedication to her non-profit organization. No question about it, Becky lives to empower survivors and prevent intimate partner violence. This non-profit organization achieves innovation in its efforts to raise awareness about domestic violence. I have had the exciting privilege to co-host a variety of events ranging from fashion to self-defense. Furthermore, I have gained a deeper understanding of how domestic violence is not an individual issue but a community problem.

In a recent event, I observed how a comfortable environment was created where survivors were able to tell their stories and empower all members of the audience as well as reassure victims in the audience that they were not alone.

As an intern at Becky's Fund, I have gained an experience that is unparalleled to any other organization. The team at Becky's Fund is tight-knit and efficient and the work we do here is towards a wonderful cause. I have learned a great deal about the issue of domestic violence and have participated in many programs that spread awareness about this problem. Becky's Fund finds new, exciting and innovative ways to teach people about domestic violence and is also incredibly hands-on and helpful with victims. This truly is a great organization to be involved with.

I first discovered Becky's Fund in 2007 during one of the organization's fundraising events. I was struck with how different their approach is. Becky's Fund treats Domestic Violence (DV) as a basic human rights issue without politicizing the topic. Becky's straightforward focus on education and prevention make it possible for victims to become survivors, to focus on recovery and empowerment. The organization also engages young men and women in order to help form healthy attitudes about relationships at an early stage - before behavior patterns have become set in and destructive. But Becky's Fund also directly assists survivors in recovery. There are many charity/non-profit organizations in Washington DC. It is often difficult to measure the impact some of them have on their intended cause. But with Becky's Fund, I see it every day.

I worked directly with Becky Lee to help change a survivor's locks after she left a destructive and violent relationship. It was very gratifying to experience the positive impact this had on the woman's confidence.

I would raise more funding and push our programs out on a national level. This is a goal we strive to accomplish daily. We can always use more staff and resources!

Having personally witnessed domestic violence, there is nothing more in this world I wish to bestow on my daughter than self-empowerment and self-worth. My daughter, who is ten now, and I have volunteered with Becky's Fund for 2 1/2 years. Becky and her organization have been instrumental in my daughter's growth and understanding. From workshops with the Girl Scouts on self-empowerment and knowing your rights, to Critical Incident Awareness Training teaching her to escape possible life-threatening situations. The events and workshops have been amazing, and I do not know that I would have found alternatives if Becky's Fund did not exist.

I personally benefited from Becky’s Fund two years ago, when Becky Lee helped me escape an escalating abusive marriage. She let me stay at her place until her volunteers and I were able to find an apartment that fit within my budget, was metro accessible, and close to my job. I was not able to think clearly at that time. She provided me with emotional support, directed me on the next steps I needed to take, and took me out to meet new people and friends. I was new in this country. My husband had isolated me, and did not let me meet other people other than his own few friends and my in-laws. She supported me during my immigration process by writing an affidavit, as well as asked her volunteers to contribute their experiences regarding my case. During the last two years, lifted me up when I was down or discouraged, and accompanied me through all court appointments regarding the assault charges, as well as my divorce. In court, she testified as a witness in support of my uncontested divorce.

Becky focuses on empowering people, and educates them on recognizing the signs of domestic violence. I was blessed to have met her, as I was not willing to use public women’s shelters.

Becky is a very passionate and energetic person. She loves what she does and draws people easily in to support the cause and spread more awareness about domestic violence. Besides all her great work and growth that I have been seeing for the last two years, she is a caring, lovely and funny friend who will always be there for you with no strings attached.

I have been interning with Becky's Fund since August of last year. Since coming to Becky's I have developed more of an awareness of domestic violence as well as ways to prevent it. Becky is an amazing mentor as well as listener, and her organization is constantly pushing to think of ways to raise awareness. Just recently Becky's Fund co-hosted an event which allowed for three women speakers to tell their stories and how they overcame their situations. Becky's Fund strives continuously to seek ways of empowering women to make the right choices!

In a city filled with nonprofits, many working for the same cause, sometimes it is hard to find one that is as passionate and on the same wavelength as you. Becky's Fund allowed me to channel my passion for domestic violence advocacy in a productive, fun, and effective manner. It touches my heart when we reach out to the community, through events or written pieces, and they begin to understand the need to support and strengthen the victims that live amongst them, mostly hidden and too ashamed to speak up.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Becky's Fund is a tireless and highly motivated team of people really working very hard to bring awareness to this ignored issue. I am very happy and proud to be a part of such an organization.

Becky Lee is a leader that many young women should look up to when they want to really make a
change in the world but need that extra motivation. Especially because she is so open to anyone directly contacting her for questions, participation or simple words of encouragement and advise in a similar journey.
