The good news is more and more people are becoming aware of this issue and are taking steps to prevent it.
And, the best way to prevent violence is to address its root causes and start shifting the social norms that perpetuate it.
Yet less than one percent of company-sponsored foundations currently registered with the Foundation Center even list domestic violence as a field of interest.
NRCDV provides training, both in-person and web-based, to meet the needs of state domestic violence coalitions, their member domestic violence programs and other allied organizations seeking to end domestic violence.
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Abine, Inc., the leading online privacy company, is partnering with NNEDV.This initial categorization differentiates between violence a person inflicts upon himself or herself, violence inflicted by another individual or by a small group of individuals, and violence inflicted by larger groups such as states, organized political groups, militia groups and terrorist organizations.These three broad categories are each divided further to reflect more specific types of violence.Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking.Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.
