Looking at statistics for domestic violence, we can clearly see how spousal or partner abuse is something that affects people from all races, religions, and walks of life. One in four women, one in five men, and one in three partners in LGBTQ relationships will become victims of domestic abuse at some point over their lifetime.
These are frightening and tragic statistics, but they’re also a call to action that we need to make sure all victims know that help and protection are available to them.
