Sat, June 17, 2017, 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM CDT
We all know someone or know of someone who has been physically, mentally, and/or spiritually abused. We encourage everyone to SPEAK OUT about their attacker. Love should not hurt but make you feel safe. There are several stories the writer tried to capture and express the severity of this disease. SPEAK OUT will become the new slogan for every voice. In order to receive help, you must SPEAK OUT and let someone know you need help. The proceeds from this play will assist in educating men and women of the sociological and psychological ramifications of abuse, teaching people how to heal from pain of the past and dont be afraid to love again in a healthy relationship.
Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, threats, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the United States have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.
