A woman shares her story to change the way people see abuse and the abused. The abused are not “those people”, they are not “that woman” or “that man”, they aren’t “she” or “them”. They are US!

The people who are abused at an alarming rate (1 in 3) are the person you stood behind at the grocery store check out counter, the woman who smiled at you on the corner, the man who said he was sorry when he bumped into you coming in the door, and the nasty person who yelled at you in traffic because they can’t let their emotions out at home.

Our neighbors, our community members, and US!
