In The Media
Each time a domestic violence story is covered, media has an opportunity to save lives.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline is a leading resource utilized by media, to provide viewers, listeners and readers with a toll-free number to call from anywhere in the country to access safety from their abusive relationships.
More than just a bridge to safety, the National Domestic Violence Hotline is available to callers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide services in more than 170 languages. Hotline advocates answer questions, provide safety planning and information as well as directly connect callers to domestic violence resources available in their local calling area. All calls to the hotline are confidential and anonymous.
A special thank you to Bradford Public Relations for their professionalism and generous spirits.
We hope the media will continue to help us tell the story of domestic violence as a way of shedding light on the devastating fact that millions of women, men and young people in this country are directly experiencing physical, mental, emotional abuse and threats of violence in their intimate relationships. When reporting on the issue, we ask the media to take into careful consideration the safety of these victims.
