Our focus for this broadcast is to bring awareness to Domestic Violence.
Statistics for Domestic Violence:
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. Ninety-two percent of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assault as their top concern.
Based on reports from 10 countries, between 55 percent and 95 percent of women who had been physically abused by their partners had never contacted non-governmental organizations, shelters, or the police for help.
The costs of intimate partner violence in the US alone exceed $5.8 billion per year: $4.1 billion are for direct medical and health care services, while productivity losses account for nearly $1.8 billion.

The news has been inundated with stories of domestic violence and domestic abuse in the past few weeks. Mainly focusing on the NFL. However, there are everyday women/men enduring this abuse daily and there voices need to be heard as well.
Although those of us who advocate against domestic violence appreciate the attention, but who will walk it out after the media stop making it their "BREAKING NEWS!?"
The month of October is coupled with Breast Cancer Awareness and usually overshadowed. It is a very important cause as well. We request that each of you in your respective space...learn something just one thing about what the signs of domestic abuse and domestic violence looks like.
It does not matter where you get the information but once you learn something share it with others.
