Hi Leanne,

The heart of this month’s Advocate is your help, your support, and your investment into work that is changing lives and giving hope in seemingly hopeless situations.

When tragedy strikes … when violence, abuse, or crisis tear families apart…

YOU are there with us, through your partnership, offering a beacon of light and life to those who feel alone and afraid — uncertain where to turn. 

As you read the following, keep in mind all the ways in which your compassion translates to verifiable action on every victim’s behalf. You are empowering us to fill a large gap in the community, and you’re empowering all victims of all crimes to take their next steps — no matter how big or small — toward healing and hope.

Thank you!

Yours Truly,

Leanne Graham
