Often, the most healing and educational tool is to share your experience with others. The Take a Stand Domestic Violence Awareness community is built on an open source platform where anyone can edit - anyone can share their stories.
Were you a victim and found a way out? Did you see a friend go through a horrible experience? Did you take a stand? Or did you suffer the tragic loss of someone you love? Post your story or share a link to a story of an experience with domestic violence here. We welcome anonymous or personal experiences aimed at helping yourself heal and helping others understand the many perspectives of this complex issue.
