Join the “1 in 4 No More” campaign now to race against domestic violence. 1 in 4 women will be victims of severe violence by an intimate partner during their lives. And it’s not just women who are affected by domestic violence. More than 15 million children will be exposed to domestic violence in the United States this year. Men can be victims too.
All proceeds will benefit Women Aware, a registered 501c3 non-profit serving survivors of domestic violence in Highland Park and all of Middlesex County.
