Wish List to support New Horizons this
"It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the
perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the
universal desire to see, hear and speak no evil. The victim, on the
contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim
demands action, engagement and remembering."
-- Judy Herman
Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault
1 out of 4 Women
will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.
1 in 6 Women and 1 in 33 Men
have experienced an attempted rape or completed rape in their
of all domestic violence victims are female.
Nearly 1 in 5 Teens
report that their boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm when
presented with the breakup of the relationship.
More than 9 times
as many women were murdered by a man they knew (1,587 victims) than
were killed by someone they did not know (168).
remember to give to the United Way! New Horizons is an agency
that receives funds from the United Way. Without the community
giving to New Horizons and United Way, we would not be able to help
as many victims of domestic violence.
