STOP THE VIOLENCE
In 2015 the 50 largest U.S cities saw a 17% rise in homicides, the biggest increase since 1990.
In just one day in the United States, more than 67,000 victims of domestic violence sought services from domestic violence programs and shelters.
Nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men reported experiencing rape at some time in their lives.
RESPECT IS THE ANSWER
Violence invades every part of our lives: our homes, our communities, and even our most intimate relationships. Too much violence affects too many people too often. Why?
Because we do not respect ourselves and others. Violent criminals lack respect for their targets. Domestic abusers lack respect for themselves and their families. Sexual predators lack respect for their victims. What can we do?
Respect is the answer. Everyone believes they should be treated with respect. Each of us can take the first step of treating others with the respect they deserve—at home, in our schools and workplaces, and in our communities.
