Acknowledge that survivors are their own best experts and provide them with resources and support.
Speak out against domestic violence. The problem will continue until society stands up with one resounding voice and says, “No more!”
Challenge victim-blaming statements when you hear them. Victim-blaming attitudes shame the survivor and create barriers to coming forward and reporting the abuse.
Teach your children about what healthy relationships look like by example and by talking about how to show respect and negotiate with others.
Call on your public officials to support life-saving domestic violence services and laws that hold perpetrators accountable.
