Women in Film Dallas
2018 PSA Script Competition
Every year, WIFD produces a PSA for a North Texas non-profit. This year, we have selected Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center. Now we need your vision!
DARCC’s comprehensive program includes counseling, crisis intervention and advocacy for those whose lives have been affected by sexual violence. DARCC is also committed to social change through the implementation of prevention, education and outreach in the community. DARCC acknowledges that different experiences can impact survivors and their loved ones in a variety of ways and works to provide the best level of care and support. The organization focuses on meeting the unique needs of all populations including LBGT, the disabled and the elderly.
To learn more about the important community work of DARCC, please visit dallasrapecrisis.org.
