It Takes Courage

I didn’t recognize all the signs. They started so small and built up slowly over time. It wasn’t all bad. A lot of it was really wonderful. The violent episodes were sometimes years apart. That is what made it so hard, so confusing.

Get Involved

SPEAK UP – ADVOCATE

Your voice has power and can have an amazing impact in your community. There are many ways you can get involved and make a difference in the lives of women, children, and families on a local level and nationally.
