1 in 4 women, 1 in 7 men, and 1 in 3 teens under the age of 18 are impacted by domestic violence, regardless of socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or any other social identity. This includes emotional, verbal, digital, financial, sexual, and physical abuse.

Safe Homes is inviting young writers in grades 9-12 to share their personal vision and voice in promoting healthy relationships and putting an end to domestic violence. Be an agent of change and write a thoughtful and unique essay that raises awareness about the issue of domestic violence.
