Domestic Violence Kills

Posted: September 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

96 domestic violence deaths were reported in Tennessee in 2011. Stop Violence Give Hope.

One death caused by domestic violence is one too many. Tennessee is ranked fifth in the country for having the highest number of women killed by men – and 63% of the perpetrators were intimate partners. It doesn’t have to be that way. Many victims of domestic violence never dream their abuser will go so far as to murder them. But it happens. Several other victims know their abuser is capable of murder, but do not know where to turn.

Partnership’s Family Violence Center is getting the word out this month of October. You can help us. Check out our How You Can Help page for information on how to Get Involved. Or call (423) 697-3829 to learn more.
