KNOCK OUT ABUSE AGAINST WOMEN

Our History

Jill Sorensen, a former fashion model for the Elite and Ford agencies in Paris and New York, and her friend Cheryl Davis Masri, owner of a Washington DC based advertising agency, founded Knock Out Abuse Against Women in 1993. Their vision was to create a non-profit organization to build public awareness and financial support to eradicate domestic violence and to help women and children whose lives have been shattered by abuse, poverty and homelessness. Now, in its 17th year, Knock-Out Abuse Against Women has raised over $7 million.
