Every 15 Seconds Someone Is Abused

Every 15 seconds someone, somewhere is abused. Everyone deserves to live free from abuse. Everyday people are denied that right.

We at Break the Cycle work to end abuse through education, legal services and changing laws. But we can't do it alone. And we don't - YOU have helped us develop a facebook fanbase of more than three thousand people, reach more than one million youth with our national announcement and give away hundreds of copies of our [Ending Violence] curriculum to schools that needed it.
