April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month. Today is Denim Day. πŸ‘– For the past 18 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.  Nothing excuses sexual violence. #nomeansno #onlyyesmeansyes #1in6 #domesticviolence #intimatepartnerviolence #lifeafter #preventioniskey #stopdomesticviolence #womensrights #transrights #humanrights #thismatters #teachyourkids

Stats: 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. #repost @somosgentela ・・・ Community update:  The San Gabriel Tribune has published an update on the fatal stabbing of 17-year-old Jeremy Sanchez from El Monte.  A 16-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing Sanchez, who was allegedly the 16-year-old's boyfriend.  The suspect initially claimed to have found Sanchez's body along the South El Monte riverbed. Upon searching, evidence was found pointing him as a suspect.  The District Attorney's office filed one count of muder against the teen. They also filed a motion to transfer the case to adult court, according to Deputy District Attorney Martin Bean. The suspect will appear in court May 10. Sheriff's Lt. John Corina said Sanchez wanted to break up with the suspect, which lead to the stabbing.  Sanchez was a student who played football, basketball, and wrestled, at South El Monte High. His peers shared stories about him on Friday and wrote messages on a banner dedicated to Sanchez.

Source: http://cdc.gov  I see this in both a negative light and a positive light.  Negative = we are a human race that loves fairy tale over reality, which means we take the fake amazing from the beginning and ignore all of the red flags. This, in turn causes us to get locked into abusive relationships (rarely does a relationship start off as noticeably abusive). Also, we are raising narcissists and abusers, some are narcissists and abusers themselves.  Positive = not all hope is lost. Since it is so close to home, this means we have an opportunity to create and inspire change. We can first change ourselves, changing what we accept, changing how we raise our children. There is hope for change here, but it takes faith in a Jesus who gives us strength to do all things. . . .  #relationships #domesticviolence #domesticabuse #intimatepartnerviolence #marriage #divorce #breakup #overcome #heartache #abuse #abuseawareness #healing #identity #purpose #emotionalabuse #verbalabuse #mentalabuse #psychologicalabuse #spiritualabuse #narcissisticabuse #stressed #anxious #depression #suicidal #mentalhealth
So happy to volunteer with Fear 2 Freedom. We had organic conversation concerning sexual assult, sex education, intimate partner violence, child abuse, and sex trafficking. We also put together survivor kits. Being a survivor of sexual assault and domestic violence this was very eye opening and cathartic. This is the beginning of my work to not only stop the cycle with my family but to also be an advocate! We need more people to speak up and stand for those who have been silenced, beaten, stolen, and abused. . . . #rva #fear2freedom #wellnessresourcecenter #vcu #intimatepartnerviolence #domesticviolence #sexualassault #childabuse #sextrafficking #lovedoesnthurt #silence #advocate #
vity aligns us Sep 2015  A good guy  She showed up limping and my hackles were raised. I know that limp. I know that gaze; 1000 yards away. ...(what happened?)... She could hardly sit down, kept shifting her weight side to side, unable to find comfort, even on a padded bar stool. "He's a good guy," she said. "I don't know why...where it came from...I tried to do everything right." "Trick-ass-ho-bitch!! Lucky I don't kill you." "At least I've still got my teeth," she offered.  I listen with an open heart to her, say it's not her fault. She knows, but why does this keep happening? I wish I had an answer.  She flinched as I touched her shoulder. I see now that this, too, was violence.  Physical invasion. Blurred lines of cruelty and concern, warmth and wickedness. "No one will believe me...cause he's a good guy..." I hear you and I believe.  Poems are a window of the soul.  The fact that the hurts can be expressed thru written word is another level of healing.  When you find your voice it speaks loudly not only to those of us who have been thru it and understand it but those who want to know more and want to help.
