Together, Let's Ensure That No Survivor is Left Behind

Jenna's Story

Lena had been my best friend since I could remember. We even made sure we went to the same college and roomed together. Like so many other young people, she met the "man of her dreams" in our freshman year and married soon after graduation. Sadly, shortly after they married, we became estranged. She would call me with tales of how right after their honeymoon, Jake became increasingly abusive, and the last time we talked she had been taken to the ER. I now remember the countless times I said to her, "Why don't you just leave?! You are smart, have a good job, and used to be independent! I would NEVER let this happen to me!" And then it did. - Jenna

Like many, Jenna did not understand that domestic and sexual violence can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. With 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experiencing abuse in their lifetime, we all know someone. They are our loved ones, our neighbors, our friends and our co-workers.
