Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) just released a video to shed light on underserved domestic violence victims. SAFE’s video focuses on domestic violence against men that often doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. Click here to watch the full video.

The number of male domestic abuse victims is shockingly high, rarely talked about, and few services are available for men.  In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data from its National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey – and one of the most shocking statistics aside from the amount of victims was the breakdown by gender. Also, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “…5.3 million men a year experience physical violence from an intimate partner. …”

SAFE is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt, non-profit organization that provides unique services for domestic violence victims and helps underserved victims. SAFE believes that if you are in an abusive relationship, services should be available to you regardless of gender, sexuality, or age. Through our educational, media, and training programs we inform the public on what to do if you become a victim.  SAFE offers information, resources, educational brochures, videos, articles, media campaigns, advocacy programs, as well as, a Speakers Bureau covering a wide array of topics; Dating Violence, Sibling Abuse, Elderly Abuse, Bullying, LGBT Abuse, and Domestic Violence against Men. 

SAFE’s Speakers Bureau is organized to present accurate, balanced, and objective information about domestic violence with a focus on underserved groups. SAFE works to ensure that abusers will be held accountable for their actions and that services will be available for all domestic violence victims, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, or ethnicity. 

Often domestic violence victims needing help and assistance have nowhere to turn because shelters are not available to them. SAFE provides an online National Directory of Shelters and Services for those who typically fall between the cracks of domestic violence services.

Our Graphic Arts intern created a new SAFE flyer to highlight our mission and goals. We are very excited to report that our flyer was featured at the 2016's International Conference on Men's Issues in the United Kingdom. Our organization views domestic violence as a human rights issue. It should not matter if you are male or female - services should be available to you.

SAFE will provide a PDF of our new flyer on our website so that you too can spread the word that there should be services for all victims and accountibilty for all perpetrators. We are working to stop abuse for everyone. We need your help!

John's Incredible Pizza Fundraising Night

Posted in Safe News

By Ramneet Gill and Kirandeep Kaur, Editor Jordan Thompson, 07/12/2016

The interns for Stop Abuse For Everyone held a fundraising night at John's Incredible Pizza on Friday, July 9, 2016. The goal of the fundraiser was to raise money to fund SAFE's upcoming Public Service Announcement video. Our PSA highlights domestic violence against males and how society tends to overlook them as being victims of abuse. The fundraising night was a huge success with over 200 people who came out to support SAFE.

During the fundraiser, the interns informed members and fellow advocates about SAFE’s mission and how the community can help make a difference. Our interns found many new supporters that were more than willing to help our organization after they heard about our cause and the measures we are taking to bring awareness to male domestic violence victims.

It was a pleasant experience for our interns to engage with the community and educate them further on human rights issues.
On behalf of SAFE, we would like to thank everyone who came out to this event and supported our organization.

SAFE Attends SCRIPT's 2016 Stop The Stigma Conference

Posted in Safe News

By Jordan Thompson, Editor Ramneet Gill, 07/07/2016

Stop Abuse for Everyone's 2016 interns attended the Summit on Community Resilience, Intervention, Prevention, and Training (SCRIPT) - conference. The conference focuses on how to stop the stigma of male domestic violence. The interns attended meetings that discuss how to end violence around communities, as well as the LGBTQ community.StanleyCarol Types of violence could include: gang, retaliatory, domestic, post-traumatic stress, interpersonal (using violence to solve a dispute), black and brown, and emotional. The speakers and the audience then explored ways to battle these different forms of violence, such as getting involved with your community through volunteering and mentorship, love the community that you serve, and share any helpful information with your community. Physical fitness and showing compassion can also help mend a broken community. 

Stanley Green, a male victim of domestic violence and member of SAFE's Speaker Bureau, and Carol Crabson, the CEO of Valley Oasis' male domestic violence shelter, showed a presentation on male domestic violence and identified the what signs to look for. The picture to the right is of Stanley and Carol.  The audience received resources on intimate partner violence, which are available to individuals who did not attend the conference as well. This was a fantastic conference that opened the minds of our interns and cleared any assumptions about domestic violence.
