Support National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (Oct/Nov)

In Canada, 1 in 5 women will experience abuse.
The statistics are higher in the US: 1 in 4.

Those numbers are too high.

As the author of a book that’s being used in women’s centres across Canada, I’m writing this post to spread awareness about domestic violence.  I believe that we all deserve to live free from abuse.

What can we do?

  1. Show understanding, empathy, and support for anyone that may be experiencing abuse
  2. Participate in National Domestic Violence Awareness Month events (October for USA, November for Canada)
  3. Donate to a local women’s centre / domestic violence shelter

I wish to thank the many staff and volunteers who support women every day who are experiencing abuse.

I also wanted to send a personal message to anyone currently experiencing abuse: You are not alone. Please reach out to resources in your community. They’re there to support you.

Thank you for spreading awareness,
Lourita
