Bench Domestic Violence


“Bench Domestic Violence” is not only a clever play on words; it is also an extremely important message. Let’s raise the shades in homes where men abuse the women they claim to love and let the sun shine in exposing the secret and bringing light.

It is time to engage healthy men to walk together towards a world of gender equity and peace in our homes. Please join our campaign and bench domestic violence. It starts today. We can’t wait any longer. The opportunity to challenge ourselves is now.

Follow us on our website, Twitter (@NDSolutions) and Facebook (NextDoorSolutions) to stay updated on all activities as they roll out.

Please provide your input on our comments section. Thank you for joining us.
