Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

If someone you love is hurting you or threatening to hurt you, your children, your pets, or other family members, you could be a victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence affects both men and women and occurs in all types of relationships. Domestic violence is a public health concern, often resulting in severe injuries, trauma, PTSD, and death, if left unaddressed.

Child Abuse Awareness

Child Abuse Awareness

In 2016, Alabama reported a 29.6% rise in child abuse cases totaling over 10,000 victims. Education and community action are key to reducing instances of child abuse. You can promote awareness, serve as a role model, educate parents and children, promote dependable child care, and work with community leaders to support children’s rights to violence free childhoods.

Sexual Assault Awareness

Sexual Assault Awareness

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18. 25% of college women and 15% of college men are victims of forced sex. Everyone has an important role to play in intervention and prevention of sexual assault. Education helps community members recognize the warning signs of sexual violence and know how to safely intervene. Our prevention staff works to educate the community from pre-teens to adults on topics pertaining to consent and bystander intervention.

Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery involving the use of force, fraud, or coercion to manipulate and control victims for financial gain. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry and second only to the international drug trade in terms of activity worldwide. It is a hidden crime as victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement.
