We are excited to launch our second Esperanza Vive to raise awareness about the plague of domestic violence. Our goal is to educate men and women about the dangers of these acts. The statistics are alarming. For instance, every minute 20 people are the victims of domestic violence, a woman is beaten every 9 seconds in the U.S., 1 in 7 men will be victims of severe violence by an intimate partner in their lifetimes.
Men and women can both be the victims of domestic violence.
The name of our domestic violence awareness campaign is Esperanza Vive and means Hope Lives in Spanish. The hope is based in two parts; Hope that domestic violence will end and Hope for justice for the afflicted.
