What Can YOU Do To Help End Domestic Violence?
“Every great dream always begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and to change the world.”
~ Harriet Tubman
Become an Advocate to End Domestic Abuse
Being an advocate extends beyond just having knowledge about dating and domestic violence (although this is a critical first step). There are many things you can do immediately to become an advocate against violence.
- Continue educating yourself.
- Be an active bystander. Keep your eyes and ears open for instances of violence and violent attitudes in social situations and the media. Call them out when you see them.
- Get to know your local anti-violence organizations and the services that they offer, so you are better prepared to help a friend, coworker, or someone in need.
- Go a step further and bring a speaker from Safe Haven into your place of work or worship to begin conversation with staff and volunteers so that we can build a stronger community against domestic violence.
