Verizon Is Taking Their Campaign Against Domestic Violence on the Road

by Amy Bucknam


A couple of weeks ago, we announced the good news that Verizon improved their policies to assists victims of domestic violence, such as a new protocol for cancelling contracts with abusers.  Now, Verizon is taking their campaign on the road in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, spreading awareness in local communities via their “Journey of Hope” bus that will have stopped in six cities in America by the end of the month. 

Verizon will be hosting “rallies” in these cities to educate people on the issue of domestic violence and raise support for the fight against it.  The company has hosted a walk near the company headquarters in Basking Ridge, NJ, in which thousands of Verizon employees participated.  The company donated $10 for each participant, raising up to $50,000 for the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

This isn’t all that Verizon is doing for Domestic Violence Awareness Month either.  Check out other things they’re doing to raise money and support for survivors of domestic abuse here.

Verizon, we’re proud.  Keep up the good work!
