Expose the Hidden World of Male Victims of Domestic Violence

    1. Petition by

      Charlene Stephens

      Newnan, GA

 

* In America, a woman is abused by her male partner EVERY 15 SECONDS.

* In America, a man is abused by his female partner EVERY 15 SECONDS.

 

* 75% of victims killed by their partners are women...24% are men

 

* There are hundreds of battered women's shelters in the U.S. 

* There are ZERO shelters for abused men. Male victims are redirected to homeless shelters.

 

* VAWA, the (Violence Against Women Act) EXCLUSIVELY refers to the ABUSER as male and the VICTIM as female. They are aware of this disparity and see no problem with the language

* VAWA is in part funded by the government. There is no such funding for male victims

TODAY WE CAN BALANCE THE SCALES. SIGN THIS PETITION TO GIVE A VOICE TO THE MEN WHO HAVE BEEN SILENCED BY BEING IGNORED. WE HAVE LOBBYISTS WHO ARE RIGHT NOW STORMING THE STEPS OF THE CAPITOL TO GET LEGISLATION CHANGED AND TO GET FUNDING FOR THESE VICTIMS. THIS COULD BE YOUR FATHER OR BROTHER OR SON. SAVE A LIFE.
