Volley Against Violence! Three Years and counting…

Hesperia Girls Volleyball team started it, and now Grant, Fremont,  Newaygo, and White Cloud keep it going!  Thank you to those young women in Newaygo County who are making a difference and using their voices.

Be a part of the solution. 

 

Last year, the awesome girls’ volleyball team in Hesperia, MI created this wonderful video for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. All of the ideas were their own. They did a great job of turning an unattractive topic into an empowering video!

This year they spread the news to all of Newaygo County’s schools.  Not just one team, but many…

  • What Is Domestic Violence?

    Domestic violence is an increasingly visible social and legal problem that includes physical abuse, verbal abuse and stalking.
    Domestic violence is a crime! It not only endangers the health and safety of the immediate victims, child and adult, but spills out into our schools, the police and our places of work. Domestic violence is never the fault of the victim.

  • What is Sexual Assault?

    Sexual assault includes rape in any form, forced sexual contact and sexual harassment. Sexual assault is a crime of violence, not sex, and can happen to anyone regardless of economic status or appearance. No one asks to be sexually assaulted.
