Domestic Violence Forum: New York City, USA

A much needed opportunity to discuss domestic violence in NYC community!

posted by Dr. Kathryn Ward

Adhunika and Sakhi-Gen2 invite you to attend the upcoming Domestic Violence Outreach Initiative Forum.

As reported by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. It is an epidemic prevalent across all communities, and cultures. It affects individuals regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality, or educational background. Domestic Violence is one of the most chronically under-reported crimes and its impacts last a lifetime.

Domestic Violence needs to be discussed more openly in our communities. It is crucial that we educate ourselves and our communities regarding its prevention and our response to incidents of domestic violence.

Please come out and show our support by hearing Sakhi advocates speak about domestic violence issues and learn how you can help bring an end to domestic violence in our communities.
