Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects millions of people in the U.S. each year — 1 of 4 women and 1 of 10 men have experienced sexual or physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner.  Over 43 million women have experienced psychological aggression.  IPV is a public health and social justice issue.  Survivors can experience physical injuries, mental health issues, and are at higher risk for engaging in risky behaviors; IPV can result in death.  The promotion of a healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationship is the “ticket” for awareness and prevention.
