Domestic Violence Awareness Month
This year for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Emerge is drawing attention to stories that are far too often left untold in order to broaden and reshape the existing narrative about the experience of survivors.
Beverly's Story
This week’s untold story centers around those domestic abuse survivors who choose to stay in their relationship. This piece, written by Beverly Gooden , was originally published by the Today Show in 2014 . Gooden is the creator of the #whyistayed movement, which began after the “why doesn’t she leave” question was repeatedly asked of Janay Rice, after a video surfaced of her husband, Ray Rice (formerly of the Baltimore Ravens), physically assaulting Janay.

How to Support a Loved One
It's not easy to see our loved ones suffering from domestic abuse, but it is important sometimes life-saving to be there for them. Learn how to provide the best support to somebody by giving the best of you.
