Your Voice is Powerful
Take a stand against intimate partner abuse during Domestic Violence Awareness Month and every month.
Your voice is powerful. Believe your voice and actions can make a difference. Be loud. Every action — big or small — creates a community that supports survivors.
What would happen if every person in your neighborhood took a stand against intimate partner abuse? What if every Kentucky resident supported survivors?
Imagine if each and every one of us believed that our voice and actions matter and…
- Attended events to support survivors and prevent violence in our community.
- Spoke up when friends and family use victim-blaming language.
- Reached out to someone in need to provide support and resources.
- Thought about how we’d respond if we witness intimate partner abuse.
- Honored the unique barriers faced by LGBTQIA+ survivors and survivors of color.
- Purchased Handmade by Survivors products to support survivor healing and self-sufficiency.
- And honestly reflected on our own behavior.
Your voice is powerful. Your ideas, words, and actions make a difference.
Candy Lightner’s voice changed drunk driving laws. Lilly Ledbetter’s voice protected women in the workplace. Ryan White’s voice changed our understanding of HIV/AIDS. Todd Beamer’s voice coordinated passengers to thwart an airstrike on the Pentagon.
And your voice can help end intimate partner abuse in families and our community.
