Education

You can help stop the cycle through educating yourself and your family, modeling and fostering healthy relationships and having the COURAGE to end domestic violence.

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in an intimate relationship where one partner tries to control and dominate the other. If the behavior is verbally, psychologically, physically or sexually abusive it is domestic violence. Assaulting, threatening or stalking an intimate partner (past or present) is a crime in the State of Washington (RCW 10.99.020).
