So many of us want to do something to help fight Domestic Violence but where do we start? This issue seems so overwhelming and so threatening that it easily induces Jess's phrase - "Impending Sense of Doom."

Well we have had the pleasure to work with The National Domestic Violence Hotline on a number of their campaigns. As the leading organization on the front lines of this issue, The NDVH provides crisis intervention, information and referral to victims of domestic violence, perpetrators, friends and families.The Hotline answers a variety of calls and is a resource for domestic violence advocates government officials, law enforcement agencies and the general public.

Through working with NDVH, we have learned that there are a variety of things that you can do to help fight this issue in one minute. Please Click here for a variety of ways that you can help NDVH, or click here for ways to get involved with Love is Respect, the teen dating abuse hotline.
