1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced violence by an intimate partner. That means we all know someone — or more realistically, multiple someones — who have been victimized. So why aren’t we talking about it more?
This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are striving to lift the curtain to reveal the realities of IPV. But not just the brutal stories of abuse. We want to honor and celebrate the strength of those survivors who are all around us.
Our journey is framed in three stages:
Part I: Call it What it Is – Abuse & Torture
Part II: “Be Heard” – Finding Help
Part III: “Be Free” – Path to Empowerment
