Prevention isn’t about stopping violence before it occurs to one individual, it’s about changing the systems and social norms that allow violence to continue to be perpetuated toward so many people.
It takes us all
At REACH, we believe change is possible. Our prevention programs work to create a world free of intimate partner violence, where every individual and community can experience safe and healthy relationships.
Does someone in your life feel unsafe
in their relationship?
Here's how you can help:
- Listen, listen, listen. Give them space to share what they want you to know. Ask questions form a place of curiosity, not judgement.
- Do not label their experience. Use the same language they use to describe their experience and their partner.
- Provide options, not advice. It is important to give folks the freedom to make decisions that are best for them.
- Continue supporting. This can be hard if the person you are supporting makes a decision that you don't agree with! Everyone is the expert of their own lives and knows what is the best and safest for them.
