Domestic violence prevention and intervention organization, Jenesse Center and its long time ambassador Halle Berry are proud to honor Peter Long PhD, President and CEO of Blue Shield of California Foundation at the Imagine cocktail party fundraiser to be held Wednesday, June 27, 2018, 6:30pm – 10pm, at the Wilshire Country Club at 301 N Rossmore Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90004.
Jenesse CEO Karen Earl said, “Dr. Peter Long and The Blue Shield Foundation are leaders in the mission to ensure domestic violence (DV), its root causes and solutions are identified and shared. They encourage collaborations through cohorts where DV service providers are encouraged to partner with healthcare organizations to establish protocols; where culturally relevant programs are encouraged to work together and strengthen coalitions to ensure that vulnerable populations are served. This is so important as we continue working to address the impact of violence on women of color and particularly black women, who the statistics indicate are most likely to be impacted by violence. Dr. Long and the Blue Shield Foundation are partners in ensuring all voices are heard. We cannot express deeper gratitude for an alliance with Blue Shield and friends like Dr. Long, who have made it their mission to end domestic violence. We stand with you. And we thank you for standing with us.”
“Jenesse is an organization that is not only vital to the community, it’s indispensable,” said Peter Long, PhD, president and CEO of Blue Shield of California Foundation. “They are innovative, driven, and relentlessly inspiring and effective. For years, the Foundation has proudly – and wisely – invested in their work to engage the healthcare system in addressing and preventing domestic violence, as well as in their efforts to ensure that services are culturally responsive, survivor-centered, and deeply rooted in justice and empowerment. They are an enduring force for good and a champion for change in Los Angeles, the field, and beyond, and we are honored to call them a partner.”
The goal of Imagine is to elevate the conversation around the topic of violence towards women, girls and men and advocate the human right of peace in everyone’s homes, workplaces and relationships.
Leaders from business, non profit, media, entertainment and government sectors are invited to attend. The event will shine a light on organizations and individuals who have moved the mission forward to raise funds and bring awareness to the issue, provide funding and relief to survivors and use their voice to stop the cycle of domestic violence.
Jenesse Ambassador Halle Berry said, “One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. This is why for 17 years, I have worked with Jenesse first hand to bring awareness to this life-or-death cause. I am proud of the achievements we have made to heal women, girls and families ravaged by violent homes and relationships.”
