Tamron Hall has launched “The Tamron [Heart] Renate Fund” to aid victims of domestic abuse.
The “Today” anchor started the fund in memory of her late sister, Renate, who spent years in an abusive relationship and was murdered in 2004.
“No one was ever charged in her homicide or in her murder, and no suspect was named. My sister’s case has led me to focus a lot of my attention on domestic violence. We don’t know what happened in her case. What I do know is that she was found in a swimming pool in the back of her home, face down, and it was ruled a homicide, ” Hall said.
Hall has partnered with Safe Horizon, which helps provide shelter and other services for survivors.
