What if relationship violence no longer existed?

We believe that prevention is possible through the promotion of healthy behavior that inclusively protects the rights of all individuals.

Together, we can create communities where safety, respect, and equality thrive. The first step is recognizing that we all play a part in promoting safe, healthy, and respectful relationships, and supporting the right of everyone to live without fear, oppression, and violence. From small acts of kindness and respect to challenging harmful attitudes, beliefs, and accepted behaviors around gender, power, and violence, we can take steps toward a violence-free future.
