Family Violence Affects Us All
Millions of women are physically, sexually, or emotionally abused every year by someone they know and love—their husband or partner. Any woman may be abused. It happens to women of all ages, races, religions, all income and educational levels, and sexual orientations.
Abuse is never acceptable. Women don’t “ask for it” and it’s not caused by alcohol, drugs, financial pressure, depression, or jealousy.
Are you Being Abused?
Does the person you love….
If you answered just one yes, then it means, you are in an abusive relationships. You are not alone and you have choices.
No one deserves to be abused.
If you are threaten or assaulted and need emergency help, Call 911 or BIA Law Enforcement 575-464-4479.
