Ending the Silence to Stop the Violence Campaign – Submissions Welcome!

 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Simmons College School of Social Work believes that domestic violence awareness and prevention work is of paramount importance. Sharing the stories of those impacted by violence and those brave enough to speak out against it is the first step toward domestic violence prevention. It is for this reason that we have partnered with experts in the space to lend their voices for our “End the Silence to Stop the Violence” campaign.

Many leading voices in the domestic violence prevention field have contributed guest posts, personal stories, PSA’s, and resources to help raise awareness in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

We ask that you read, comment, and share these submissions to help promote the work that our collaborators are doing to prevent domestic violence in their communities.
