ATLANTA – Nationally and locally, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc is working to address violence against women and encouraging all members to break the culture of silence surrounding this issue. In metro Atlanta, the Douglas Carroll Paulding Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc has awarded $7,500 to the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (GCADV) to support the organization’s tireless work to end domestic violence and increase awareness amongst minorities. This event and donation presentation will occur, Friday, June 1, 2012, at 6 PM, at the Downtown Douglasville Conference Center.

For the past 30 years, GCADV has been Georgia’s leading representative of domestic violence agencies, advocates, allied individuals and survivors throughout the state. GCADV brings together member agencies, allied organizations and supportive individuals who are committed to ending domestic violence. GCADV leads advocacy efforts for responsive public policy and promotes quality, comprehensive prevention and intervention services throughout the state. “GCADV is truly honored to receive this donation,” said Nicole Lesser, executive director of GCADV. “We’re especially excited that this donation was made in connection with the 1st Annual Regal Awards, which will emphasize the critical work of organizations in metro Atlanta communities. In 2011, Georgia was named 6th in the nation for its rate of men killing women and 108 women were killed due to domestic violence.  “To provide needed trainings, continue to advocate and create systems change for all victims, we are hopeful to work with the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta continually and ensure that this donation will be used to wisely,” said Lesser.

“The ladies of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc are proud to support the tireless work done by GCADV, and we are thankful that this donation is possible to further train advocates and assist where needed to end domestic violence in Georgia,” said Sharon Jones, awards committee member.
