Verizon and California Partnership to End Domestic Violence Launch Program to Help Victims Protect Themselves by Using Technology
Date:8/7/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- California domestic violence prevention advocates will learn how to use the latest technology to help keep abuse survivors safe, thanks to a new program created by the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (CPEDV) and Verizon.

The program, funded by a $130,000 grant from the Verizon Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Verizon, is designed to teach domestic violence advocates about the use of new technology. Armed with the latest tools, advocates will be able to pass on the information to survivors, support groups and law enforcement in their communities.

On Friday (Aug. 7), approximately 50 domestic violence prevention advocates from across the state, along with Assemblymember Sandre Swanson and representatives from Verizon and the National Network to End Domestic Violence, gathered at the Oakland Conference Center to take part in a check presentation for $130,000 to CPEDV in support of the program.

"The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is pleased to partner with Verizon, a corporate leader in supporting innovative solutions to end domestic violence," said Tara Shabazz, CPEDV's executive director. "This initiative provides our advocates the latest life-saving information to share with victims in their community."

As technology advances, it is increasingly important for victims of domestic violence and their advocates to be familiar with the latest communications tools, according to Elva Lima, Verizon's vice president, strategic programs.

"Verizon is committed to using our resources and the latest technology to address the issues that are critical to the well-being of our communities," Lima said. "This initiative will enable victims and survivors of abuse to use technology as a powerful tool to seek help and stay safe."
