Be Safe Online
If you think your online activities are being monitored, they probably are...your Internet, online, and email activities can be easily traced. It is safer to use a computer at a local public library, Internet cafe, community center, or trusted friend's house.

Help a Friend, Family Member, or Co-Worker
Silence excuses abuse. It's important to speak up, and just as important to be safe and effective when helping a friend, family member, or co-worker who is being abused or abusing someone else. Before becoming involved, it's important you know what to do to help, how to approach the issue, and where you can turn for help. Helping can mean dedicating a lot of time and energy to the situation. Know your own boundaries and abilities up front.
