We are rising up against abuse, because abuse is sick. It is twisted. It feels like prison. It is painful torture. It is a game of power and control. It is a pattern. It is push and pull. Abuse escalates and intensifies over time, particularly in domestic situations. It alters the reality of the victim against their will. It changes the victim. It traps the victim. Abuse is usually covert. Abusers don’t just make a mistake. They don’t just have a bad day. Abuse is darkly complex. Enough is enough. The time has come to rise up.
It is our mission to rise up against abuse through the power of creating awareness, disseminating knowledge, providing resources, and being a voice for the abused to bring healing, hope and justice.
