Abuse can come in many forms, including emotional and psychological abuse. In fact, nearly half of all men and women experience this form of abuse from an intimate partner. #Every1KnowsSome1 #DVAM

10/06/2021

When we think of the meaning of abuse, we often picture bruises and physical signs of violence. But did you know that abuse can take place without any physical violence at all?

Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse in which one person forces another one to question their thoughts, memories or experiences of events. Gaslighting undermines a victim's faith in themselves and sense of reality.

If you or someone you know is in need of support, our team of trained advocates are available 24/7 to listen, simply call (315) 468-3260 or visit our live web chat today: https://www.verahouse.org/online-chat-service

Thirty years ago this fall, Anita Hill faced down an all-male, all-white Senate Judiciary Committee—led by then-Senator Joe Biden—to testify that her boss, Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas, had sexually harassed her. It was a landmark moment and inspired countless women to come forward with their stories, to file complaints, and even to run for office. It also cemented Hill as a leading figure in the fight for women's rights and against gender-based violence.

Next summer, Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) will be celebrating its 20 Year Anniversary, and they will be kicking off celebrations in conversation with Anita Hill on October 12!

We hope you can join Anita Hill and GGE’s Founding President and CEO Joanne N. Smith in an intergenerational conversation with GGE youth organizers to discuss the work to end gender-based violence. Register now! bit.ly/20yearlegacyfb

This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, NYSCASA joins Survived and Punished NY in calling on Governor Kathy Hochul to grant mass clemency as the first step to atoning & repairing the state’s wrongdoing against survivors, particularly criminalized survivors. Join us on Oct. 15 at 10:00 AM for a speakout for survival and mass clemency: https://bit.ly/CrimSurvivorsSpeak

Image Description:
Pink square with white text on the right, towards the top, which reads: “Speakout for Survival and Mass Clemency.” Underneath it is black text, which reads: “October 15, 2021 / 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM / 875 3rd Ave., New York, NY 10022.” Underneath that is smaller black text that reads: “Join Survived & Punished NY in demanding Governor Hochul and New York State acknowledge and atone for the ways they have abandoned survivors, particularly survivors they have criminalized and incarcerated. Learn about our new report with Cornell Law School and join us for community building following the event!” Survived and Punished’s logo—a dual-shackle handcuff that, moving right to left, transforms from a handcuff into a white kerchief (and has the words “Survived and Punished” written on it) is near the bottom right. And underneath it are the hashtags: “#FreeThemAll” and “#MassClemencyNow.”

Along the left-hand side, a poem written by Audre Lorde, A Litany for Survival, is set in white squares surrounded by a border of flowers, birds, and butterflies in light greens and blue, with the sun shining in the corner. The poem reads: “And when the sun rises we are afraid / it might not remain / when the sun sets we are afraid / it might not rise in the morning / when our stomachs are full we are afraid / of indigestion / when our stomachs are empty we are afraid / we may never eat again / when we are loved we are afraid / love will vanish / when we are alone we are afraid / love will never return / and when we speak we are afraid / our words will not be heard / nor welcomed / but when we are silent / we are still afraid / So it is better to speak / remembering / we were never meant to survive.”

Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. It happens in every community. Victims can be any gender, race, or socioeconomic status, and abusers may choose to further harm partners who are already marginalized. #Every1KnowsSome1 impacted by domestic violence.

Abuse is all about power and control, and emotional abuse is often used by abusers to gain power and control over their victim. In fact, it’s so common that nearly half of all men and women experience emotional/psychological abuse from an intimate partner. Would you know the signs of emotional/psychological abuse? #Every1KnowsSome1 #DVAM

I’m A Domestic Violence Survivor. The Way You Talk About Gabby Petito Matters.

"Everyone from horrified spectators to amateur internet detectives began analyzing every bit of information they could find. They publicly rehashed the police footage, social media posts, and Gabby’s own words, jumping to conclusions and placing blame.

And as people took to Twitter and Facebook to discuss their views, the rest of us got a front-row seat to the kind of victim blaming that so often accompanies cases of domestic violence." http://ow.ly/hX7Q50Gib2j #SurvivorSpeaks

"When the police camera footage first leaked from Gabby Petito’s missing person case, something inside of me recognized something inside of her."

October is #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth. In the United States, as many as 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men are victims of domestic violence. The male-dominated culture in which we live has perpetuated this crisis, teaching us that violence is an acceptable solution to our problems, that women and those at the margins of the margins have less value than men, that to be vulnerable is to be weak, and that the only emotion men are allowed to feel is anger. But while we cannot control the environment in which we were raised and socialized, we do have agency over the culture we choose to build for ourselves and future generations.

Our CEO Tony Porter put it best: “If women could end violence against women and girls by themselves, they would have done it already.” Brothers – we need you in this work. How are you showing up to build a safer world for ALL women, for those at the margins of the margins, and for yourselves this month and beyond? 💜 #BreakingOutOfTheManBox

Gillibrand Announces Over $270,000 In Federal Funding To Fight Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recently announced $270,782 in federal funding for programming to help end domestic violence and sexual assault.

The funding was authorized through the Office on Violence Against Women’s State and Territory Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions Program and will support organizations that work to end domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault and the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence will receive funds.

“Domestic violence organizations like NYSCASA and NYSCADV provide invaluable services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault across New York State,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I’m proud to be a part of the fight against sexual violence and will continue fighting to ensure that these organizations have the resources they need to aid survivors.”

“The New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault is grateful for this grant award,” said Joanne Zannoni, Executive Director of the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault. “This funding allows us to strengthen appropriate responses and options for victims/survivors of sexual violence and exploitation. A key focus of this work is educating decision-makers about survivors’ needs, as well as the impacts of existing or proposed policies and procedures on sexual assault victims.”

2 minute completely anonymous online survey on the topic of non-consensual sexual experiences during college (at any time - you do not have to be in college) My name is Liz Lane. I am a doctoral student at American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts. I am conducting research on women who have had non-consensual sexual experiences during college and the impact of those experiences on their academics/work life. I am trying to reach potential participants to take the 2 minute, completely anonymous online survey. I am reaching out to see if you might support the survey on social media and pass it along to anyone who might be interested in completing it or just sharing it. My hope is that developing research in this area will continue to make schools and society as a whole stand against sexual assault in a more unified way. I have included the link and summary to the survey. If you feel you can participate/share it, your support would be helpful in gathering some real numbers. Thank you very much, Liz Lane [email protected] Survey on Non-consensual Sexual Experience https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7N88CS9 You do not have to currently be enrolled in college to participate. This is an anonymous survey, which will take less than 3 minutes. You will not be asked for your name or the name of any colleges at any point. There is no IP tracking of any devices. Participation in this survey requires: · Current age of 18 or over · A nonconsensual sexual experience while enrolled in college at some point in your life (you do not have to be a current college student to complete the survey). · Female gender identity at the time of the non-consensual sexual experience during college · Current or past enrollment in a U.S (American) college or university I am trying to bring to light the impact of sexual violence at post-secondary institutions as a serious issue on academics and work life. Participation in the study contributes to understanding and addressing the national problem of campus sexual assault. I am seeking your support in this research with your participation and by sharing the link to the survey with people you know and any organizational affiliations you may have.
