Allstate Senior Vice President Vicky Dinges spoke about financial abuse and empowerment at a Financial Services Roundtable luncheon on Oct. 24.

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Allstate Foundation Purple Purse inspired Americans to take action to help end domestic violence and financial abuse.

The Allstate Foundation invited thought leaders, influencers and the public to join the conversation throughout its campaign. In late October, Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Allstate Senior Vice President Vicky Dinges, National Network to End Domestic Violence CEO Kim Gandy and YWCA National Capital Area CEO Monica Gray participated in a discussion about financial abuse and empowerment at a Financial Services Roundtable luncheon for 100 Congressional staff and local opinion leaders.

The Allstate Foundation inspired the public to donate to help nonprofits provide critical survivor services. The fourth annual Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a friendly fundraising competition among 221 domestic violence nonprofits, was the most successful yet. More than $4.1 million for local nonprofits was raised through public donations and grants from The Allstate Foundation.

Congratulations The Allstate Corporation!
