Verizon Hosts Summit to Raise Awareness and Drive Solutions
On Thursday, Feb. 21, approximately 300 leaders from domestic violence prevention organizations across the country will gather to explore current issues and highlight positive and healing solutions. A Day to Connect, Inspire and Heal, a summit hosted by Verizon, is intended to spark a national conversation about domestic violence and to drive solutions to this societal issue.
The Summit will be streamed live from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST on Verizon Insider. Viewers can participate in the conversations by submitting questions to expert panelists and moderators, who include prominent journalists such as Dr. Richard Besser, chief health and medical examiner of ABC News, sportscaster James Brown, and Christi Paul, CNN anchor.
Viewers can also become active by donating their old wireless phones and accessories to HopeLine from Verizon, a program that helps connect domestic violence survivors to vital resources and funds domestic violence prevention organizations. Through HopeLine, the company recycles and furbishes no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories and provides wireless phones with minutes and text-messaging service to domestic violence survivors.
You can also take action against domestic violence with the HopeLine App for smartphones and tablets. Access domestic violence resources, learn how to donate or host a drive, text to donate, share success stories and more. A call button connects you directly to the National Network to End Domestic Violence for crisis intervention, information or referrals.
