Telemundo Providence Announces Línea de Ayuda on Domestic Violence
Experts from the RI Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be available to help Spanish-speaking viewers
Providence - Telemundo Providence, in collaboration with the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence, will be hosting a Línea de Ayuda on Tuesday, October 23rd. This on-air call to action and helpline provides Hispanic viewers with information and resources about this important issue.
Experts from the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be joining the WRIW Telemundo team to bring viewers, and those in need, the opportunity to reach out for support. All calls received will remain confidential.
"Domestic violence is a community problem. That is why Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the No More/No Más campaign call for community involvement to end domestic violence," said Deborah DeBare, executive director of the organization. "We are pleased to have the support of Telemundo Providence, whose Línea de Ayuda plays a vital role in reaching diverse households."
This Línea de Ayuda takes place during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. "Despite considerable progress in reducing domestic violence, an average of three women in the United States loses their lives every day as a result of these unconscionable acts," declared the official proclamation from the White House earlier this month.
Watch Telemundo Providence on Tuesday, October 23rd, from 4pm to 6pm, and call the number on the screen to talk in Spanish with a representative of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
