Founded and created by Lilian Agwu-Ibeh, a survivor, We Refuse Abuse Inc. is a 501C3 Non-profit organization that was started to advocate against domestic violence. We Refuse Abuse Inc. seeks to empower, inspire, and educate individuals through stories of survival and raise awareness about the impact of domestic violence on families, communities, and society as a whole. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of funding from the county, We Refuse Abuse Inc. is struggling to provide support where it’s needed this year. That’s why our team at Capital Family Law Group supported their fundraiser during the 2020 holiday season so they could continue helping domestic violence survivors going into the new year.
We Refuse Abuse Inc. reaches out to those in need in and around the Rockville community to help provide education, job placement, and emotional support for survivors of domestic violence. Some ways the organization reaches out to those in need and spreads awareness about their work is through their “We Refuse Abuse Magazine” print and online publication, social media, community events, and word of mouth from family and friends. Lilian also visits local shelters and schools to advocate against domestic violence.
We Refuse Abuse Inc. relies heavily on the generosity of local members of the community to keep their important work going. Our lawyers often see the issues that come with domestic violence in our work, and we feel called to do our part in supporting those in our community that are working to help survivors of domestic violence. We are happy to have had the opportunity to support this important organization, and we wish them all the best in continuing their work in the Rockville community.
