End Sexual Assault & Violence

To end domestic violence and sexual assault, we all need to be part of the solution. Educating yourself and others. 

KNOW THE FACTS & START A CONVERSATION 

Talking about these issues openly will help end the shame and stigma that domestic violence and sexual assault survivors are burdened with. The next time you’re in a room with 6 people, think about this: 

  • 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes. 
  • 1 in 3 teens experience sexual or physical abuse or threats from a boyfriend or girlfriend in one year. 
  • 1 in 5 women are survivors of rape. 
  • 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced some form of sexual violence in their lives. 
  • 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men were sexually abused before the age of 18.
