Tell a Gal Pal about Domestic Violence. Let's face it
Domestic violence isn't just a women's issue. It impacts
everyone--men, women, children, families and whole communities each
Since 2008, The Allstate Foundation's Tell a Gal Pal campaign
has encouraged everyone to talk openly about domestic violence with
their gal pals - whether it's your best friend, sister, mother,
daughter, niece, cousin or neighbor - and support those in need.
The campaign takes place in October, Domestic Violence Awareness
Month, and features helpful tips and tools, interactive online
activities, inspiring videos, and many more ways to get involved in
ending domestic violence. Tell a Gal Pal has been supported by
inspiring gal pals such as Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino, Ugly
Betty's Ana Ortiz, and Cheryl Burke of Dancing with the Stars.
