Organizations Dedicated to Fighting Abuse

Abuse can take many forms. It can be suffered at the hands of a loved one or a stranger, and it may be encountered in the home, the workplace, or outside. Physical and emotional abuse can have long lasting effects and leave their victims depressed, hurt, and isolated long after the original abuse is over. Abuse in all its forms thrives in an atmosphere of silence, where the abuser is never questioned and the victim often feels as if they are to blame for their own victimization. For this reason, it is crucial that individuals become aware of the types of abuse that exist, notice the signs of abuse, and refuse to tolerate it. Fortunately, there are groups dedicated to educating the public and providing resources and support for victims.
