Pets are often a key part of our families. We form strong emotional bonds with our companion animals and they provide friendship, laughs, and even sometimes headaches – like when they have chewed up a favorite sweater. For many of us, coming home for the holidays means embracing our much-loved and missed pets. At the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), we believe that everyone should have a safe and peaceful holiday season – including our beloved pets.

The holiday season is quickly approaching! If you're planning on any celebratory meals out with friends and family, please consider supporting an establishment that shares our values and stands firmly against domestic violence. Be sure to let your server know that you're there enjoying the chef's food or mixologist's drink after seeing her or him at Chefs Take a Stand!

The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) recognizes November 20th as Universal Children’s Day, the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Some of these rights include the right to life, health, and education; to not be discriminated against; to be protected from violence; and to have their views heard. On Universal Children’s Day, NNEDV celebrates and promotes the rights of children worldwide, while noting there is much work to be done to ensure that all children can exercise these rights.

After a presidential election that surfaced many issues related to violence against women and women’s equality, we are strengthened in our resolve and commitment to create a social, political, and economic environment in which gender-based violence no longer exists. Together with our partners across movements, we continue to stand against sexism, racism, homophobia, and all systemic oppressions that affect survivors and victims.

I have a friend who is always fighting with his girlfriend. He puts her down in front of others and calls her names. I don’t think it’s okay, but I don’t know what to say. I don’t think he hits her though. What should I do?
Not Sure What To Do
