WHO NEEDS US?
But in particular,
Women who are being abused.
You are being abused if your partner:
Hit you—throws things at you
Pushes you around—hurts you
Forces you to stay home and not associate with others
Refuses to talk, to help, or to listen to you
Forces you to have sex
It is very important that you
Talk to someone you trust
We believe that everyone has the right to live free of violence and abuse -- we all have a right to be safe.
