You Can Help End Domestic Violence
One in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. Domestic violence not only affects those who are abused, but it also has a negative impact on family members, friends, coworkers, other witnesses, and your community. It’s a serious and sometimes fatal matter.
Domestic violence prevention begins with education. You can help end it by
- Volunteering your time at a local domestic violence program.
- Encouraging teachers and school counselors to openly address domestic violence and healthy relationships.
- Displaying prevention posters and materials in public places such as community bulletin boards, places of worship, schools, and libraries.
If you think someone you know is being abused, find resources to help. If the person is in immediate danger, call 911.
