Most people agree it’s hard to talk about domestic violence. This October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Allstate Foundation, YWCA and SocialMoms have teamed up to host an important Twitter Party on October 3, 2012 to raise awareness for domestic violence and Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation’s symbol for domestic violence. Join us as we talk about Purple Purse, the importance of talking about domestic violence and educating and empowering women. You’ll be entered for a chance to win great prizes from SocialMoms just by participating during the party. Don’t miss out on this important talk! We will be joined by @YWCAUSA,the national YWCA, to chat about “passing the purple purse,” bringing awareness to domestic violence, empowering women and more. Please make sure you follow @socialmoms, @clicktoempower, and @YWCAUSA before the party!
