WHY WE NEED A DAY OF ACTION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

image6

  • 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence (e.g. beating, burning, strangling) by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 
  • Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and even death. The devastating consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime. (From the NCADV)

"This is more than an important issue, this is an urgent one.  We have allowed far too many victims for far too many years to die in silence.  Behind the number 50,000 in 2017 alone is a woman, a child a family.  The great Audre Lord wrote 'our silence will not save us.'  This event reminds us to speak up for ourselves and others!"

Video of the demonstration of a "Die-In'

Watch our Demonstration Video of a "Die - In,"  a ceremonial "Die - In" to remember women who have lost their lives to intimate partner violence.  We recommend a local "Die-In" to be a part of your Day of Action Against Domestic Violence.  After our short video of 2:45 minutes you have the option of viewing other Healing Voices-Personal Story videos or watch it again by pressing the repeat arrow in the lower left hand corner.
