Domestic Violence, &  Sexual Assault Prevention

Assault Violence

"We know that deep cultural change isn't going to happen overnight, it takes time, but it also takes smart, engaged, creative, committed people applying their best thinking to these issues, and it's going to take enough people in enough communities to decide that they've had enough." 

Mariska Hargitay, founder & president, Joyful Heart Foundation

Remember, no one asks to be abused. Victims are not at fault, the perpetrator is. Committing sexual assault or domestic violence is a crime and we need to hold individuals responsible for their criminal behavior. 

  If you have been abused, your immediate safety is first. If you are in danger, try to go to a safe place. Reach out for support. You deserve it! 

 If you are in immediate danger call 911 and ask for emergency assistance or call your local program or one of the National Hotlines below or their websites
