You will have an opportunity to bid on an array of goodies not only in two silent auctions but in a live auction as well. What a great opportunity you have to share in solidarity and the passion of giving with others who support those in need within this community.

So how can you help us at SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition

Take A Stand is a call to action meant to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence for Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) and throughout the year.  By taking a stand we intend to remind the nation that there are still countless people–victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities–impacted by domestic violence.  We, all of us, should not stop until society has zero tolerance for domestic violence and until all victims and survivors can be heard.

Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, help SHRCC to raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence.

Things you can do:

  • Make a donation to SHRCC in honor of the people in your life who have been impacted by domestic violence.
  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram to learn more about domestic violence.
  • Wear purple — the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month — during the month of October and use this as a way to tell others why ending domestic violence is important to you.
  • Change your social media profile and cover photos.
  • Learn more about the movement.
  • Promote Healthy Realtionships and respect in your community.
  • See if your workplace has a domestic violence program in place.
  • Learn about resources available in your community.

We feel safer when we think domestic violence happens somewhere else to someone else.

In reality, domestic violence occurs in our neighborhoods and in our families. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or economic status. Abusers control and terrorize our daughters, bosses, sisters, friends, and even our sons – who are most often abused by their male partners and sometimes their female partners. While I work to end domestic violence for so many reasons and in honor of so many people, rarely a day goes by when I don’t connect the work I do to the life and experiences of my aunt; a highly respected doctor and beloved mother.

There is a myth that women who are victims must have low self-esteem, but this is exactly that: a myth. My aunt was a trail blazer. She went to medical school when most women were told that their career options were limited to nurses, secretaries or teachers (three honorable and critical fields, but a narrow list at best). When my aunt was assaulted by her former partner, she tried to get the local justice system to hold the offender accountable. When the justice system failed her, she moved 500 miles to keep her and her children safe. She testified in front of the state legislature to help improve a system that would create a safer world with effective and real protections for victims and their children.
