Why Take Action?

Change happens when we believe in something so greatly, that we are moved to take an action. Today, we ask you to take just one action and become part of a bigger social movement. A movement that says, “I believe survivors of domestic violence” and “You are not alone.” Action not only keeps us connected as a community, but it can motivate others to do the same. Most importantly, your action matters. Your action inspires hope for every survivor that has come forward and hope for each victim needing to know they are not alone.

Save the number to a nearby shelter. Ours is 816-861-6100 and it is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Every individual or group who supports Rose Brooks Center, supports the lives of those escaping domestic violence. Get involved through volunteering, events, or spreading the word about resources and you will help provide safe futures today!

Donate your time and/or money to support your local domestic violence programs. Inquire about volunteer opportunities at www.rosebrooks.org/how-to-help/volunteer Or make a donation today! www.rosebrooks.org/how-to-help/donate/

Model non-violent, respectful behavior in your family, with your children, and around your friends.

Hold others accountable when they blame the victim or excuse an abuser’s behavior.

Get the word out. Violence thrives in silence and the more we talk about it, the more those around you will know you stand with organizations like Rose Brooks and are a safe person to share with. In other words… Your voice matters!

Ask your employer or faith community to support or donate to a local domestic violence agency and even offer to lead the effort.

Be available. If someone you know is thinking about leaving or is in fear the violence will escalate, be ready to help. Educate yourself today about Safety Planning as a resource. You can find Safety Plans here: www.rosebrooks.org/contact/receive-help/

Educate yourselves on things to do if you suspect your friend, young or old, is in an abusive relationship. Find some tips here: How-to-Help
