How this will help

Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive behavior in which one person attempts to control another through threats or actual use of physical violence, sexual assault, and verbal or psychological abuse. Anyone can be a victim of abuse, no matter their race, age, gender, sexual orientation, education or income level. Everyone deserves to be safe in their relationship. Help Safe Voices in the fight against intimate partner violence by pledging to end domestic abuse in 2013.

The time is now to take a stand against violence:
