<p>We're working together to stop intimate partner violence. There are lots of reasons for violence but the reason it continues is stigma. We're Allison and Christine, the co-founders of the See the Triumph campaign (<a href="https://piratemail.ecu.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=9d1B-uf240OWNuHtj3bLexp7iCgJD9AIeBQ8prR9Cj6yW6rgqEps559v-xLMbog4sLqTRxYPpRw.&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.seethetriumph.org">www.seethetriumph.org</a>), and together with others on this cause are working together to end stigma. <br></p><p>Stopping intimate partner violence requires stopping stigma in its tracks. The only way to do that is through education and understanding. We believe there should be a public health campaign to eliminate the stigma of intimate partner violence, and we're starting here with one shared experience a week. We call it the 1, 2, 3 of stopping intimate partner violence: 1. We share one thing with you a week to stop intimate partner violence. <br></p><p>2. You share it with your friends. <br></p><p>3. With the help of Causes and the Stop Abuse Campaign, people from all over the United States and around the world will be working together to stop intimate partner violence by ending stigma, one person at a time. <br></p><p>We'll promise to keep it interesting, and we hope you will eliminate stigma and just tell us where we can do a better job. We're happy to learn, we're here to work together. <br></p><p>Thanks for joining us. It starts with you now, please share something from the cause and ask a friend to join. That way we really can stop stigma in its tracks, and stop abuse. <br></p><p>You can reach us at <a href="https://piratemail.ecu.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=9d1B-uf240OWNuHtj3bLexp7iCgJD9AIeBQ8prR9Cj6yW6rgqEps559v-xLMbog4sLqTRxYPpRw.&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.seethetriumph.org">www.seethetriumph.org</a>. <br></p>
According to the CDC's recent National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS),
"On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical
violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States."
for us to believe,then, that many still question whether or not domestic
violence is even occurring. Watch this video and share with others - the
more people we can get to join our cause, the more strength we have as
advocates to say, YES, domestic violence
is occurring and YES, many women and men DO worry about violence in the home!
