Review for Becky Lee Women's Support Fund, Washington, DC, USA
As a board member, volunteer, and friend, Becky's Fund is a movement: a movement towards a world, a community, a culture that is free of domestic violence and the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical devastation that it inflicts upon the victims. Becky Lee has discovered and has promoted that the key to stopping DV is not only in taking an introspective look at the victim, but for EVERYONE to be accountable, for men and women to ask the question: "Why does he/she abuse, control, harm?" We often want to point to the victim with heavy hearts and deep concern and help them to leave. BF is educating and creating awareness around the issue where we are forced to be accountable and to look at the symptoms, signs, and sources of the despicable behavior that often destroys lives and, much too often, takes lives. As a mom, a sister and a friend, I am thankful for organizations like BF -- which is not afraid to be bold and to take a stand. I am honored to be a part of the movement.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
In so many ways-being engaged with survivors of domestic violence who have become empowered, encouraged and strengthened by the hard work, never-ending diligence and committment of the organization to help whenever and however they can.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would make none.
