One in three high school students have been or will be involved in an abusive relationship. Some victims provoke the violence committed by their dates by making them jealous, acting mean, or teasing them into thinking they want to have sex.
“We are so grateful for the support from Verizon that allowed us to launch this critical initiative,” said Cindy Southworth, NNEDV Executive Vice President.Additionally, we collaborate with other community organizations working with youth and are available to present to these groups on our work.We are available to do a variety of educational workshops and presentations that help to create dialogue and learning around the root causes of violence against women and the complex issues surrounding domestic and sexual abuse.We are able to provide support to women in various areas: we meet women at the hospital who have been sexually and/or physically assaulted; we accompany women to Family Court and provide support around Relief From Abuse orders; we offer welfare advocacy and housing assistance, and we are there to help women and children figure out their best options and navigate all of the community’s resources that are available to them.We work with K-12 levels in schools in Windham and Southern Windsor Counties and present on various topics, including healthy relationships, consent, gender-socialization, dating violence, violence against women, sexual assault, and the media’s impact on youth.
Callers to the hotline are given a number of choices from a menu in which a recorded voice refers to a non-Jewish man as a “goy,” a derogatory term for a non-Jew.
