I am an advocate with Fight Against Domestic Violence which is an advocacy group out of Utah but helps throughout the world to help those affected by Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence and to spread awareness.
I am raising money to support a cause that I care about deeply. As a therapist I often see this with the people that I work with either as teens in very risky relationships, as children who witness their parents, or as adults who are engaged in dangerous relationships. I also have personal friends that are survivors. Unfortunately we also lose many in this battle as well.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in their lifetime. I want to increase awareness and financial resources for service providers who support victims/survivors.
