Nearly three out of four Americans know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. That means over 220,000,000 of us are connected to someone affected by it.
The numbers don’t lie: domestic violence is ongoing and all around us. But we frequently don’t recognize it as it happens, or if we do, we feel powerless to take action.
La Casa de las Madres’ 1000 Voices Strong campaign calls on you, whoever you may be – a web surfer, a YouTube user, a friend, a daughter, a neighbor, a witness – to help break the cycle of violence by raising awareness in our communities: awareness of what domestic violence is, that it’s happening, that it is not acceptable, and that it needs to stop.

How can we prevent domestic violence? As individuals, we can offer one-on-one support. We can direct someone to expert resources. We can speak out against abuse when we see it. We can raise our voice. But as a community of voices raised together, we can achieve sustained societal change. By working together, we can create an environment where victims are not isolated, where witnesses can prevent future violence, and where all of our children grow up experiencing safety and respect in relationships.
