In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of domestic violence shelters, outreach programs and victim advocates on Twitter. Why Twitter? Twitter is changing how we interact with each other and the rate at which information spreads. If you have access to a computer or own a cell phone, Twitter can instantly connect you with other advocates, spread awareness, find victims help and provide opportunities to network with survivors.
A domestic violence victim myself, I buried my emotions for many years. Replaced the anger and fear with drug and alcohol addiction, promiscuity, bipolar behaviors and an eating disorder. Cancer saved my life. After the cancer diagnosis in my mid-twenties, my path to recovery gave me the chance to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. Confronting the truth about my past and the sexual abuse I’d endured from a young age, I began to heal. Hopefully, this list will connect you with those who can help you heal or spread awareness about the domestic violence cycle.
