The Hotline Believes Abuse is Never Acceptable

dvinthenewsYou’ve probably been hearing about Ray Rice, the 27-year-old running back for the Baltimore Ravens. Rice has recently been charged with aggravated assault (a felony) against his fiancée, Janay Palmer.

Here at the hotline, we’ve been watching Rice’s case unfold. No matter what happens with this individual case, we wanted to take this opportunity to reiterate that violence within a relationship is NEVER acceptable. We know that abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race, economic status, sexual orientation, or religion. And it’s not okay. It is never okay.

We’ll continue to monitor this case and share our comments as it continues. Remember, if you are experiencing abuse or know someone who is, our advocates are available by phone 24/7 at  1-800-799-7233, or by chat through our website Monday through Friday, 9am-7pm CST. Please get in touch with us. We’re here to help.
