I believe that every home should be safe. Every person deserves to live without fear of violence... especially from the person they love most.
This is why I support the YWCA of Kitsap County. They are the only agency in Kitsap County solely dedicated to serving surivors of domestic violence. They, as a YWCA, also are dedicated to empowering women and eliminating rascism.
Survivors of domestic violence come from various backgrounds. Check out the video below where survivor Lindsay Fischer describes her experience. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DD9OS9MztYQ&feature=youtu.be)
When we ask ourselves why people stay in abusive relationships, it presumes a lot.. like there is a safe choice. Instead, we should ask, "why does the abuser abuse?" We should also ask, "how can we help"?
