'The Real' Stands Against Domestic Violence

“The Real” is proud to be a partner with the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Although every relationship is different, there’s one thing most abusive relationships have in common; the different types of things an abuser does to maintain power and control over their partner.  Abuse can appear in many forms, from physical abuse to online abuse and stalking. Remember, healthy relationships include respectful communication. 

If you or a loved one is facing domestic violence, don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re unsure of what to do, contact loveisrespect by calling 1-866-331-9474, online at loveisrespect.org, or by texting “loveis” to 22522. It can be scary, but it can save a life.
