I'd like to ask people to take action against relationship and sexual abuse: start a conversation, educate yourself or ask Wellspring to bring a program to your workplace or community group, forward an article or a blog post that you find interesting.
Need some ideas? Here's a few:
- Watch a quick video with your family. Skidmore students created a unique way to help is see how abuse starts almost imperceptibly and escalates https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZSSwXQzmqQ
- Read a book and/or discuss it with your book club. Here's some suggested titles http://www.opdv.ny.gov/public_awareness/campaigns/shinethelight/stlbookclub.pdf
- Let others know you care about this issue by posting on facebook or other social media that's it's Domestic Violence Awareness Month
