The National Black Nurses Association Violence Reduction Committee will be hosting a Call to Action webinar to discuss Gun Violence, Police Reform, and Domestic Violence. It’s time to discuss topics that are often avoided, but absolutely necessary to discuss.
In today’s world with everything going on around us, it’s easy to lose ourselves and forget how to use our voices. It has become easy to lose our POWER. How? I’m glad you asked.
- We lose our power by watching what others are doing and try to keep up with them in our personal and professional lives.
- Not knowing our true value and how we can help others
- Allowing others to degrade our self-worth, which negatively affects our self-esteem
- Lusting after what someone else has and wanting to obtain it at any cost.
By staying in the past and allowing whatever happened to hold us hostage and prevent us from moving forward We lose our voices because of something that was said to us in one environment or another. Our voices are necessary. Our voices are powerful. Our voices and stories will help someone else. Use Your Voice! Snatch back your POWER! If you have already given your power away, I demand you to take it back. Why? Because YOU ARE WORTHY!!
A transparent discussion with Veronica Pryor Faciane as we share parts of our stories as survivors of domestic violence. #mentalhealth
According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence by their intimate partner at some point during their lifetimes. At least 5 million acts of domestic violence occur annually to women aged 18 years and older, with over 3 million involving men (Huecker & Smock, 2020).
I’ll ask the question again: Have you had an open, transparent, and honest conversation with your family, friends, colleagues, and employers about domestic violence? The time is now to #SpeakUp
Have you lost the confidence to use your voice and tell your story? Do you feel that others won’t embrace what you have to say? All of our stories are impactful and all of our voices are needed to help others. Join me as I am a guest presenter on Restore Your Roar with Michelle Davis-Govan.
