The Constitution Will Not be Weaponized Against Us!
Our privacy and liberty today are not “deeply rooted in... this Nation’s American history and traditions”

A diverse group of activists raise their fists in the air at a march. In the center is a Black person with shoulder-length curly hair and glasses, shouting into a microphone. On either side is an individual in their 20s or 30s with light skin and curly brown shoulder-length hair--and an elder with light skin, a beige hat, and glasses. Overlaid on top of the photo is a goldenrod to purple gradient. In the upper right-hand corner is an element of the Partnership's logo in white--intertwined hands.

Domestic violence is a systemic pattern of behaviors that uses threats and/or acts of violence that can be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, and financial to establish and maintain power and control over another. Beliefs and behaviors are learned, grounded, and protected by social and cultural systems.
