Prevention Programs

Prevention isn’t about stopping violence before it occurs to one individual, it’s about calling out and changing the systems and social norms that keep so many people trapped in perpetual cycles of violence and abuse.

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 from a place of curiosity, not judgement.
  • Don't assume or label their experience. Use the same language they use to describe their experience and their partner.
  • Provide options, not advice. It's important to give folks the freedom to make decisions that are best for them.
  • Continue supporting them. 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.
