Abuse is Common
A generation ago, abuse victims were often terrified of coming forward, worried that they would appear weak or be blamed for their abuse. Thanks to the growth of the women's movement, awareness and the victim's rights movement, as well as the lobbying of millions of advocates across the globe, we now know how common domestic violence is. Saying that, there is still a lot of work to be done around this subject. At Talk2Dot we create a friendly and welcoming approach to exposing domestic abuse for what it is using Live shows, animated videos and face2face video conferences. Our strategy is PREVENTION, MITIGATION, ESCAPE PLAN & WHAT NEXT.
