NIA Domestic Violence Awareness

Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behavior that can happen in a dating, marital, or live-in intimate partner relationship. In an abusive relationship, one partner tries to maintain control over the other by using physical, psychological, verbal, and sexual violence. Although factors such as drug and alcohol use, stress, or a family history of abuse may contribute to the problem, domestic violence is primarily an issue of power and control.

 

NIA believes that it is imperative to increase public awareness about the terrible cost of domestic violence in our community and city. We engages in public education initiatives that are aimed at raising awareness in the community and providing information regarding the services and resources available to victims needing help.

 

The following informative pamphlets are available at NIA’s office, 6614 11th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
