Taken from one of our followers. Thanks Olivia!

Today is Wednesday - which means I’m wearing PURPLE to show my support for survivors of Domestic Violence.

Between 21 and 60% of victims of intimate partner violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming for their abuse. (ncadv.org)

27% of domestic homicide victims are children. (miamidade.gov)

Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Every 9 minutes, that victim is a child.(RAINN.org)

Meanwhile, only about 5 out of every 1,000 rapists will end up in prison.

Domestic Violence is carried out in a number of ways and isn’t always towards just one person in the home. Join me in wearing purple this month and I’m standing in solidarity for those impacted by domestic violence every day.

Title IX Needs Your Help — Write a Letter to the Editor – AAUW : Empowering Women Since 1881

Title IX turns 48 today! We need your help protecting Title IX so that it can continue to do what it was created for - protect students. Here’s one step you can take right now:

In May, the Department of Education issued a long-anticipated but extremely harmful rule designed to substantially weaken Title IX, rolling back important protections for student survivors of sexual harassment and assault. Now we need your help to stop this rule from ever going into effect.

And that's on taking care of yourself #SelfCareSunday

The Imprints of Sexual Trauma: How the COVID-19 Pandemic May Trigger Survivors

“Notice what happens — in your body, in your breath, in your thinking. Your body is delivering a resource, and the resource comes from within. As a survivor, something truly horrific was done to you, and as a survivor, you found a thousand ways to get through.”

It is vital to understand how survivors may be triggered by their past experiences and the present threat of COVID-19.
