Tamron Hall Creates Fund to Support Domestic Violence Survivors in Honor of Late Sister

article by Ashley Monaé via madamenoire.com

It’s been nearly 12 years since Tamron Hall lost her sister Renate to an act of domestic violence. Found beaten and floating face down in a pool in Houston, Hall has since devoted her time to advocating for domestic violence victims and speaking out of the issue.

To honor Renate and take help others dealing with the same issue, the Today co-host decided to partner with non-profit Safe Horizon, launching “The Tamron ♥ Renate Fund” in October, which is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Aimed at providing support for victims, the fund educates their friends and family members so they can learn how to become a strong support system.

In addition to the fund offering educational courses and offering resources like shelter and legal expenses for victims, families can call Safe Horizon’s 24-hour hotline (1-800-621-HOPE (4673)) as another alternative to learning how they can help victims.

  1. Tamron has always been a great community advocate. While she was on Fox 32 in Chicago for many years, she was always in the neighborhoods helping someone. This is her next iteration, and it will be successful, helping thousands of women. That’s a prediction! God bless her.

  2. Reblogged this on Black Girls and commented:
    It’s wonderful to see this being an abuse survivor. Having lived in a Hispanic majority area, it was hard to tell people of different race identities the issues I had to put up with due to being black women, and ALSO because I’m a black women. I hope this is something that takes off really well, I think we ALL need this as black women. I’ll be donating my money to this! I hope everyone who can do it, does so too.
