Verizon presenting sponsor of "Mujeres Latinas en Accion Voces Unidas 2014

Chicago, IL.- This past Thursday, March 20th, Mujeres Latinas en Acción celebrated its annual Dinner & Silent Auction Voces Unidas 2014 at Hyatt Regency of Chicago. The banquet underscored the organization’s great commitment to continue efforts to provide the resources needed for Latina women and their families who are survivors of domestic violence.

“Each year more than three million children witness domestic violence in their homes. Just imagine the catastrophic damage this is causing and the high-risk situations these families are living in”, said Miguel Bassaíl, Midwest Area multicultural marketing strategist at Verizon presenting sponsor of the event. “Many victims don’t know where to go for help and often live in vulnerability and fear. I’m amazed at the work “Mujeres” is doing to change that”.

“Verizon, is strongly committed to supporting domestic violence awareness and prevention,” added Bassail. “To help build awareness of this important issue, Verizon introduced a program called HopeLine® more than 20 years ago. This multi-faceted initiative helps survivors of domestic violence by providing them with refurbished wireless devices, which come ready-to-use with 3,000 minutes of wireless service as well as text messaging capabilities”. Expressed Bassaíl at the Mujeres Latinas en Acción Gala.
