ABOUT

A Woman Wearing Cropped Jeans

Every six days, a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. ... Each year, over 40,000 arrests result from domestic violence—that's about 12% of all violent crime in Canada. Since only 22% of all incidents are reported to the police, the real number is much higher. Read More

 

Annually, approximately 2% experienced physical abuse, 1% sexual abuse, 5% neglect, 5% financial abuse, and 5% suffer emotional abuse. The annual incidence of elder abuse is estimated to be 2% to 10% with only about 1 in 15 cases reported to the authorities. Read More

Inspired by social movements of the past, I CHOOSE ME over abuse began in 2021 when the global pandemic of COVID-19 brought about an insurgency of domestic violence.

 

Across the world, many women were trapped at home when the international order for people to stay at home came into effect. This brought another pandemic - that of domestic abuse as women were trapped at home with their abusers.

 

I Choose Me over abuse is a movement to collaborate with other organizations to end domestic violence and abuse of all kinds. Pretty quickly, this singular moment evolved into a full-fledged movement.

 

Our goal through education and resources is to encourage victims to CHOOSE themselves first, and find the strength and courage to say "I am valuable, I deserve better."
