Thanks for your question Yonairy. Do you have an idea for a project to help stop domestic violence?
If you are experiencing any domestic violence, you can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline on 1−800−799−7233

Hi Yonairy -- this is a great question on an important issue.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline has some great resources on domestic violence. Here's one article in particular that might be helpful as you think through this question. It outlines some of the root causes for abuse -- why abusers abuse, and why people stay in abusive relationships: http://www.thehotline.org/is-this-abuse/why-do-people-stay-in-abusive-relationships/

It might also be a good idea to interview people who are survivors of domestic violence, or people in your community who work to solve issues of domestic violence. We have a tool that can help you do that!
