Webcam covers go over the camera lens of your devices, so if the camera turns on without your knowledge, no one can see you.

As advocates and allies against abuse, how are we to respond when our favorite celebrity commits an act that goes against everything we stand for?

Advocates against domestic violence are all too aware of how often violence against women is perpetrated. We come to work day after day and are often the first to hear horrific stories of domestic and sexual abuse. We know that one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. We know that one in three will experience some form of physical or sexual violence.⠀

As advocates and allies against abuse, how are we to respond when our favorite celebrity commits an act that goes against everything we stand for? Here are four tips: ⠀

➡️ 1. Own Your Emotions. Our responses to trauma – direct or vicarious – will differ, and that is fine. ⠀

➡️ 2. Know When and When Not to Use Social Media. Practice #SelfCare more than you preach it. There is often the expectation that having a presence on social media means users have to respond to every single incident that occurs. You do not. ⠀

➡️ 3. Challenge Others. Find out whose voice and perspective is missing from your immediate circle and how to lift up those voices and experiences.⠀

➡️ 4. Challenge Yourself. Challenge your personal biases. Think critically about how and why we choose to celebrate public figures.⠀

“We simply cannot overstate the importance of safe housing for survivors who are fleeing their homes due to abuse. Nearly 60% of all homeless women report that domestic violence was the immediate cause of their homelessness. Safe housing is literally a lifesaver. Once housing is established, it is a stepping stone to a life free of violence,” said Kim Gandy, NNEDV President and CEO. #DVhousing

This fall, NNEDV was grateful for the stellar contributions from two young women who joined our mission to end domestic violence. They've volunteered their time, energy, knowledge, and enthusiasm and we are forever grateful! 👏
