What can we do to be a...




Vocalize - Speak up about abuse. Let abusers know their behavior is wrong and unacceptable. Encourage them to get help.  If you see or hear someone being abused, use the cell phone... call the police!  Doing nothing can make the abuse worse and even deadly.


Organize - Support your local domestic violence/sexual assault program.  Most hotlines, advocacy or shelter organizations could benefit from your time, energy, financial support or other donations.  Simply call to find out ways to help in your area.


Investigate – resources, local businesses for support.  Brainstorm ideas, seek speakers.                          Learn more - to Help more.


Collaborate - Make a commitment to work for equality and ending violence in all its forms.  Model non-violent and respectful behavior in your everyday actions.   Expect the same from others.


Educate - yourself and others. Schedule informational workshops for your club, workplace, church group. Encourage schools to include prevention as part of their curriculum.
