Domestic violence affects millions; individuals of all genders, races, religions, cultures, and socioeconomic status. It’s not just punches and black eyes -- it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats, and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use of the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.
