On behalf of the VPC Board and Staff, we wish you joy and abiding hope for a beautiful New Year!
As 2016 draws to a close, we here at VPC are reflecting on a year of change and opportunity. We have immense gratitude for those of you who continue to support the valuable work of the Coalition. Thank you for being a continued part of our VPC family. Your support is critical during this holiday season, and we ask that you help us continue our mission to make a difference in the lives of youth and families who are experiencing violence in communities across our cities.
We invite you to give a donation of $100 or more this holiday season and/or join our circle of supporters by making a monthly contribution of $30 or more. Your contribution will help strengthen our County-wide initiatives to expand youth development opportunities, reduce gun violence, support families impacted by domestic violence, and strengthen the reentry support infrastructure for individuals returning to their communities after incarceration, all in an effort to break the cycle of violence. Our 2017 VISION is to create new forefronts in the understanding of violence and its prevention in Los Angeles.
While we have noted tremendous progress in our efforts addressing violence in Los Angeles, we recognize that there is no one size fits all solution to uplifting families. As a community, we can choose to be rendered inactive in the wake of violence and oppression, or we can come together to mobilize to advance our advocacy and prevention efforts.
Your support will make a world of difference in our ability to convene and engage our coalition members, and build stronger networks to educate our community on violence prevention. More than this, your support will allow us to raise our collective ability to see our humanity and the possibilities that surely will work together to eliminate violence.
Click here to make a donation online, specifying that your contribution is for “Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater LA”. To send a check, please make it payable to “Community Partners FBO VPC” and mail it to our office, located at 1000 N. Alameda St., Suite 240, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
On behalf of our coalition, we thank you for considering a donation to VPC this holiday season.
