The Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence has launched an awareness campaign to highlight the complexities of abusive relationships and the diversity of survivors of abuse. The campaign also highlights NYCHope, the city's first domestic violence portal, a hub of information, connections to community-based resources and supports for survivors. See the attached video, and visit www.nyc.gov/nychope.
The City continues to stand with the 40% of New Yorkers who are foreign born and in particular is steadfast in its mission to protect the rights of every victim of domestic violence, regardless of immigration status.
A Middle Schooler at NYCHA’s Miccio Community Center in Redhook, Brooklyn, holds up a healthy relationship Valentine’s Day card that he made after a two-day workshop with OCDV’s NYC Healthy Relationship Training Academy. Youth use what they learn in order to raise awareness about healthy relationships in their community.
