As we woke up today with heavy hearts and lots prayers for our late Sister Aasiya Zubair and all the other victims of domestic violence, we revive our commitment to do our best in addressing the issue within our community. But we cannot do it without your support. Project Sakinah is your project. It’s your story. You have to write it. You have to tell it. You have to publish it. Without YOU, it’s not going anywhere. We need your help to sustain this project. We need it now. Please donate generously and be part of this movement.

To Stand with Purple is a step beyond wearing purple on a certain day in solidarity with the victims of domestic violence. It means stepping forward to help them as they need it. It is a commitment we make that never in our life will we let abuse go unchecked. Never in our life will we judge or ignore an abused person. To Stand with Purple is to do whatever we can do to stop this evil within our families and our community.Please check our campaign here.

When Esta Soler lobbied for a bill outlawing domestic violence in 1984, one politician called it the “Take the Fun Out of Marriage Act.” “If only I had Twitter then,” she mused. This sweeping, optimistic talk charts 30 years of tactics and technologies — from the Polaroid camera to social media — that led to a 64% drop in domestic violence in the U.S. Watch this dynamic video here ».
