Domestic Violence is Not Acceptable.  Not Here. Not Now. Not Ever.
Domestic violence happens every day, in small towns and cities across Kansas.  Abuse does not discriminate -- it happens to people of every age, race, creed, and sexual orientation.  It happens to those who are wealthy, to those getting by, and to those struggling to make ends meet.

Someone You Know is a Victim.

Whether you realize it or not, you know a victim of domestic violence.  Around the world, one in three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused during her lifetime.  In Kansas, one in 10 women report domestic violence victimization.  She's someone you'd never expect...the school volunteer, honor student, or soccer Mom.  She's your friend, neighbor, co-worker, or family member.
