Domestic Violence Speakers

Domestic abuse is a harsh reality that an alarming number of African-Americans have had to live with. Domestic violence and abuse refers to physical violence in romantic and domestic relationships and can seriously emotionally, mentally and of course physically damage the victims. Domestic violence can be challenging for victims to face as they often have a hard time coming out about the abuse and feel ashamed or guilty. Educating people about the facts of domestic abuse and offering supports to victims through hiring a high impact African-American motivational or inspirational speaker from Great Black Speakers can raise awareness on the issue and give victims hope.
