Stuff About Me:
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. The average tv commercial is 20-25 seconds. The average time of a top 100 song is 180 seconds.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been physically abused by an intimate partner. That's 1 out of every 3-4 friends of mine and yours.
The cost of domestic violence exceeds $8.3 billion annually. The US total debt as of 2017 is 20.4 trillion. 20.4 trillion minus 8.3 billion? The average interest made on 8.3 billion over Twenty Years – $1,222,582.09
A study of intimate partner homicides found that 20% of victims were not the intimate partners themselves, but family members, friends, neighbors, persons who intervened, law enforcement responders, or bystanders.
72% of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner; 94% of the victims of these murder suicides are female.
Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and their children. Many victims face homelessness when they flee abusive homes. Their experiences are confounded by economic instability, often perpetuated by abusers. Homeless rates have jumped 23% in 2017.

Still think domestic violence doesn't affect you? Join our efforts and donate today for the chance to get closer to a future with no domestic violence. A future in which our children can grow up without fear. A world where children aren't parentified at an early age. A world where a child is not the prime witness of a case. A world where families our not broken. A world where communication is fostered and celebrated. A future without violence. Are you a champion for change? Donate now and become part of the solution.
