Supporting survivors of domestic violence

Joshua Tree Under the Milky Way

One of the causes I care deeply about is the issue of domestic violence. It is, unfortunately, often a problem that is still overlooked, downplayed, excused, or denied. Nearly three out of four (74%) Americans personally know someone who is or has been abused. One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime. Annually it affects between 600,000 and 6 million women and between 100,000 and 6 million men, depending on the type of survey used to obtain the data.

Domestic violence includes physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. One case of domestic violence is already one too many. It can affect you, a family member, relative, friend or co-worker. We can all do something about it by supporting groups and organizations that work to stop domestic violence and provide support services and resources to survivors.

This weekend, April 16-17, 2011, the Jenesse Center — the oldest domestic violence intervention program in South Los Angeles — is having their annual fundraiser. Money raised at this event help keep their shelter doors open and provide life saving programs and services to women, men and children in crisis.

I will be donating a limited edition, signed print of “Joshua Tree Under the Milky Way” for their auction. You too can support the work of the Jenesse Center by purchasing one of these limited edition, signed prints (limited to 99) on my website. Head to my products page. 20% of profits from these prints, as well as any other purchases made on my site from now until May 15th will be donated to them. Not only will you own a beautiful piece of art but you will be helping with a great cause.

Custom sizes and framing options are available. Please email me at info@evosia.com for more info.

Thank you,

Henry
