Speak Out to Stop DV in CT.
“I’m too scared to tell anyone what’s happening.”
“It’s none of my business what goes on in someone else’s home.”
“I’m just one person. What can I possibly do?”
Domestic violence thrives in silence. Whether you’re a survivor, a witness, a neighbor, a friend or relative, your voice can make a difference.
Policymakers, It's Time to
Domestic abuse is a public health crisis affecting people across the state. In fact, a staggering one-third of all CT criminal court cases involve family violence. Meaningful policy changes can protect those who need it most…and make our communities safer places to work and live.
