Did you know that 15 percent of all violent crime is done by an intimate partner? Survivors of domestic violence are often silenced because friends, family, and the community do not support them. Many lose their homes, their children, their jobs, and even friends and family. Speak Your Truth Today aims to give these victims the support they need through education, resources, emotional support, and celebration of freedom.

Who Are You Supporting?
We are supporting Domestic Violence, Abuse Victims & Survivors. Survivors of DV are often silenced. “So many are silenced because our friends, family, and community don’t support them. They are silenced because our churches don’t support them. They are silenced because our Police Force, Military, and Courts don’t support them. They lose their pets, their homes, their children, their jobs, their friends, their futures they thought they knew.” So, we support them.
What Inspires Your speak Your Truth Today?
We are inspired by being able to give those impacted by domestic violence and abuse their voice back. Additionally, we are inspired by being able to give others the abuse education they need to see the signs.
