Help us create a Domestic Violence Registry that will be accessible to everyone
Knowledge is Power... Demand Registry Access
An Order of Protection or Restraining Order is valuable only if the abuser abides by it, or if its existence is known to an individual before abuse can begin.
Knowledge is Power!
Help support our goal to create a designated resource, like Megan's Law, to identify Domestic Violence Abusers.
And he promised...it would be the last time....and he kept that promise...BECAUSE NOW....I AM DEAD...
For those that experienced DV:
If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you say? What advice would you give? What words of encouragement could have made a difference during those challenging times?
Domestic Violence Awareness Month gives us the opportunity to reflect on these questions and share our stories to inspire change and healing.
This initiative is a safe space for survivors and supporters to share their experiences, offer hope, and make a powerful impact. Your story could be the lifeline someone else desperately needs.
Let's stand together this Domestic Violence Awareness Month, break the silence, and make a lasting impact. Your story matters, and your courage can spark change. Share your letter with us and be part of a movement for a brighter, safer future.
Thank you for your strength and resilience.
God bless you!

We are meeting with key players to help make the DV Registry a reality!
Watch our interview with Matt Guichard of GTP Lawyers to delve into some of the problems the Court system has regarding unchecked DV permanent restraining orders and what we are doing to change the laws and create a national database of violent perpetrators so others can be forewarned.
The way restraining orders are handled in our court system today, it’s unlikely you can find out if someone has a history of violence and has had a restraining order or orders filed against them. Whether entertaining the idea of commencing a romantic relationship, hiring a babysitter, checking out the coach of your child’s team, or other life circumstance, being able to easily obtain a history of an individual relative to past violent behavior can literally be a matter of life and death.
The Courts recognize it, the Legislature recognizes it, the Police recognize it. Why is that we have specific Domestic Violence Units, yet things are not getting better. The most prevalent violence in and around the court houses are not the gangbangers…it’s Domestic Violence where high emotions often lead to violent actions. What about the Shelters we hear so much about? Even as a short-term solution, how does that work against the battered party in Court? The Courts act as if it’s always better to keep the family unit together…when clearly that’s not always the case. What’s the solution?!?
This depiction was scripted from an actual event and played out to an all-too-frequent, but always tragic, end.
Know Means No!
Know Their History Means No Abuse.
Support AreTheyAbusive and help to end Domestic Violence before it begins.
What you can do to help:
Nicole Sinkule was a murder victim of domestic violence. She was murdered in her sleep by her boyfriend who had a history of abusing her. Nicole's life and death continues to be a lesson to those of us that find ourselves in abusive relationships. Abusers will not stop, they will not change. Abuse is physical, mental and sexual. Abuse is not biased to gender, race, class or sexual orientation.
Help us to create a public database of Court Ordered Protection/Restraining Orders until a resource, such as Megan's Law, is available to all.
KNOW means NO!
