“A Survivors Journey”
Everyday in the District of Columbia, 76 calls are made to the police for help with domestic disputes and violence. The mural will raise awareness about domestic violence in our city, and spread a message of hope and healing.
DASH (District Alliance for Safe Housing) is excited to partner with artist Joel Bergner to create a mural that honors survivors of domestic violence and tells their stories of victory over violence.
The project will cost $25,000 to $40,000 to complete. (The more funds we raise, the bigger our mural can be!)
