South Carolina is number five and that's not a good thing.
SC has the fifth highest number of women killed by men than any other state in the U.S. It's, unfortunately, a list where we always rank near the top. That alone should persuade us to think about what's happening in our state that causes so much violence and what we can do to rise up and prevent abuse in the future.
Safe Passage has been supporting victims of domestic violence, sexual assualt and child abuse in York, Chester, Lancaster and Union counties for decades. We need your help to reach more people, save more lives and prevent the continued cycle of abuse that seems to prevail in our community.
Everyone deserves to feel safe in their home, neighborhood and community and it's all our responsibilities to stand up and #SayNoMore to domestic violence, sexual assualt and child abuse.
Will you stand with us?
Let's make SC the number one state to #SayNoMore
