Domestic Violence

It's happening in epidemic proportions. And it’s everybody’s business. Did you know that…

A person is beaten every 9 seconds.

Battering is the single largest cause of injury to women in the United States? More women are injured as a result of abuse than all of the injuries from automobile accidents, muggings, and cancer deaths combined.

1 in 4 girls will be sexually violated before they reach 18; 1 in 3 girls during their lifetime? That’s 25% of all girls in Wisconsin's High Schools.

In sexual assault cases 68.1% of cases the victim knew the perpetrator, 21.5% of the perpetrator were related to the victim, and 10.3% were strangers.

You can help. You should help.

If you know that someone is being abused: 

As a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or concerned citizen, please remember: Domestic Violence and sexual assault is everybody’s business.

If you are abusing someone: 

End the violence by getting help. You can get help. Domestic violence happens every day. And it’s everybody’s business.

Please help put an end to this vicious crime.
