Ways You Can Prevent and End Violence:

There are some ways you can help prevent and end violence.

  • Call the police if you see or hear evidence of domestic violence.

  • Support a friend or family member who may be in an abusive   

  • Volunteer at a local domestic violence shelter or another 
          organization helping survivors or working to prevent violence.

Trust your instincts, If he misses FVIP classses or his violence escalates, then you might be in more danger. If you feel you are in danger you probably are. Try to get to a safe place as soon as you can. 

Become an activist. Participate in a Take Back the Night march, a yearly march held in most major cities to raise awareness about violence against women. Or tell your Congressional representatives that you expect their support for the funding of domestic violence survivor services and prevention programs.
