TAKE ACTION

SAY IT.

Learn about the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault and talk openly about them. Break the silence. Speak out. Contact our office to schedule a training or outreach event for your school, workplace, or community group.  Download one of our posters signs, tell us why you are saying “No More,” and send us your photo to be added to our gallery.

SHARE IT.

Help raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault using social media by following us on Facebook, on Twitter: @center4sc,  and Instagram:@center4sc and share our posts. Tag us in your social media posts and use the hashtag #wesaynomore. Join our mailing list to keep up to date with our events.

SPEAK UP.

Challenge yourself and others not to use language or expressions that denigrate women and girls and/or tease or harass men and boys for not being “manly” enough. Let your friends know that their comments are limiting and offensive and that they have no place on the playing  field, in the classroom, at work or in our homes. Speak up against comments that blame the victim for what has happened to them.  Let  your friends know that blaming the victim is inappropriate and offensive. Encourage them to consider why our society questions the victim’s behavior instead of the perpetrator’s violent and abusive behavior.

SUPPORT SURVIVORS.

If someone discloses that they have or are being abused let them know that the abuse is not their fault. Reassure them that they are not alone and that there is help and support out there. It may be difficult for them to talk about the abuse. Let them know that you are available to help whenever they may need it. What they need most is someone who will believe and listen. Provide anyone who needs help with information about our 24-hour hotline: (845) 634-3344.
