Review for Becky Lee Women's Support Fund, Washington, DC, USA
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.
