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.

Our Mission

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.

“If you talk to more SURVIVORS and less sexist businessmen maybe you’ll understand what we want. We want safety. We want healing. We want accountability. We want closure. We want to live a life free from shame.”
