Helping to End Domestic Violence is a generic brochure designed to be used or adapted by local programs, state DV/SA coalitions, educators, allied professionals, and the general public to raise awareness of how individuals and the community can help end domestic violence. This brochure was designed to provide basic domestic violence information that can be handed out to a variety of audiences.
This brochure defines domestic violence and gives examples of some abuse tactics. It also has the following brief sections: "Knowing the Facts" addresses some realities and misconceptions about domestic violence; "Joining the Effort" suggests how to help support survivors and work to stop domestic violence; "A Serious Problem" highlights the impact domestic violence has on all of us; and "For assistance" provides the National Domestic Violence Hotline and National Dating Abuse Helpline information, and leaves a blank information box for a service provider to place its contact information.
