FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAFE RELEASES THEIR FIRST VIDEO “TILL DEATH DO US PART” TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF UNDERSERVED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS
Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) just released a video to shed light on underserved domestic violence victims. SAFE’s video focuses on domestic violence against men that often doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. Click here to watch the full video.
The number of male domestic abuse victims is shockingly high, rarely talked about, and few services are available for men. In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data from its National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey – and one of the most shocking statistics aside from the amount of victims was the breakdown by gender. Also, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “…5.3 million men a year experience physical violence from an intimate partner. …”
SAFE is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt, non-profit organization that provides unique services for domestic violence victims and helps underserved victims. SAFE believes that if you are in an abusive relationship, services should be available to you regardless of gender, sexuality, or age. Through our educational, media, and training programs we inform the public on what to do if you become a victim. SAFE offers information, resources, educational brochures, videos, articles, media campaigns, advocacy programs, as well as, a Speakers Bureau covering a wide array of topics; Dating Violence, Sibling Abuse, Elderly Abuse, Bullying, LGBT Abuse, and Domestic Violence against Men.
SAFE’s Speakers Bureau is organized to present accurate, balanced, and objective information about domestic violence with a focus on underserved groups. SAFE works to ensure that abusers will be held accountable for their actions and that services will be available for all domestic violence victims, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, or ethnicity.
Often domestic violence victims needing help and assistance have nowhere to turn because shelters are not available to them. SAFE provides an online National Directory of Shelters and Services for those who typically fall between the cracks of domestic violence services.
