for Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention

STATISTICS

  • Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten by a man.
  • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women — more than car accidents, muggings and illnesses combined.
  • 10 MILLION children are exposed to domestic violence every year.
  • A woman is 70 TIMES more likely to be murdered in the few weeks after leaving her abusive partner than at any other time in the relationship.
  • Last year over 50,000 women were killed by a domestic or intimate partner, that’s 58% of the 87,000 female homicides. Most of these killings did not happen suddenly, but over a continued pattern of violence.
  • In the year 2019 there were 1.32 million domestic abuse related incidents REPORTED, with 750,000 criminal arrests, with the vast majority of those cases ending with a dismissal of ALL charges. THAT IS A PROBLEM.
We will make changes within this current system.
