A Violence Free Tomorrow Is Our Vision Today

Sexual, Domestic & Stalking Violence

Sexual violence or sexual assault is any unwanted sexual attention, contact, or activity. Sexual violence may involve one or more persons forcing, pressuring, coercing, threatening or otherwise manipulating another person into sexual acts or activities against his or her will and without his or her consent.

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior used by one person to gain and maintain power and control over an intimate partner or an ex-partner. It occurs in both dating and long-term relationships. Tactics may include physical, sexual, emotional, and economic abuse, isolation, coercion, and intimidation.

Stalking violence is the repeated following, watching and/or harassing of another person in a way that would cause a reasonable person to be fearful.
