Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. Domestic violence occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, or dating.
Everyone has the right to live without the fear of being abused. Violence can occur anywhere – at home, at work, or in public. However, there are things you can do to make yourself and your family safer. You may not be able to predict or control your partner’s violence but, you can plan the most effective way to respond to it.
