About “A Window Between Worlds”:

A Window Between Worlds is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence. Through creative expression, battered women and children recover a sense of renewal and power. Their images of hope, survival and strength educate the public and become “a window between worlds” for survivors taking steps to change their lives.

For children, witnessing domestic violence is the strongest risk factor for transmitting violent behavior to the next generation. 63% of boys age 11-20 who commit murder kill the man who was abusing their mother (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence & FBI Crime Statistics). AWBW provides art as a window of safety for children to find a positive path through trauma.

Event Committee: Liza Alvarez, Phyllis Cohen, Robin Cohen, Cheryl Diamond, Lynn Fischer, Eliza Gano, Claudette Grand, Dione Grillo, Barbara Ketchum, Mindy Langfus, Cynthia Maldonado, Rona Maltz, Lisa Pearson, Lonnie Resser, Audrey Salzburg.

Auction Donors Include: Color Me Mine, Disneyland Resort, Hularious Hoops, LA Zoo, Natural History Museum of LA County, NBC Universal, Trader Joe’s, PRP Wine, See’s Candy, and many more!
