Join Host Rebecca Balog, Vice President of Whisper n Thunder in an open dialogue on Domestic Violence in Indian Country.
Domestic violence, is a pattern of behavior which involves the abuse by one person against another .
The abuse is not limited to obvious physical violence, nor is it limited to just women being abused, men are victims too. Domestic violence can also mean endangerment, criminal coercion, kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, trespassing, harassment, and stalking etc.
“It takes a village to end domestic violence, not the simple strength of one person behind closed doors. In saying that bold statement, we ALL should acknowledge the independent bravery one faces when surviving abuse. That said, we ALL are responsible for ending violence in our communities. If you saw your neighbor’s house on fire you would help, and when an individual’s world is burning down around them in a domestic assault - it’s the same reality. “ ~ Rebecca Balog

APRIL IS SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH
It is estimated that 1 of every 6 women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime, according to the Rape Abuse Incest National Network (RAINN). This number is about 1 in 33 for American men. Approximately 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injuries to women age fifteen to forty-four, more common than auto accidents, mugging, and cancer combined.
All Americans can play a role in changing the culture that enables sexual violence. Each of us can take action by lifting up survivors we know and breaking the silence surrounding rape and sexual assault. Together, our Nation is moving forward in the fight against sexual assault. This month, let us keep working to prevent violence in every corner of America, and let us rededicate ourselves to giving survivors the bright future they deserve.
