YOU CAN HELP! We are currently trying to raise funds to continue interviewing survivors of partner violence and create more mini-documentaries and tools to help victims, advocates and other professionals understand it and stop it. Help us turn outrage into action by donating now… Donate To Cause
Testimonial from one of the survivors interviewed by OutrageUs: “Words cannot describe this project to a victim…to see the videos and know that there are other people living and breathing the exact same thing as I did is empowering and motivating.Your project will change lives, it will save lives and it will empower women… we need to reach out for help and your site offers ways to do that…”
OutrageUs launched this website in January 2012. Stay tuned as we continue adding interview excerpts, resources and links to help you effectively address partner violence. Also, share your thoughts with us! We are interested in what you think of the site, whether or not it was helpful to you, and any thoughts you have on how to improve it.

American women ages 16-24 experience high rates of relationship violence, and 60% of acquaintance rapes on campuses occur in casual or dating relationships. Through a generous grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky, OutrageUs is producing a mini-documentary to prevent dating violence among youth by making them aware of warning signs and what they can do if they are concerned about their own relationships or the relationships of classmates and friends. The video will feature the personal stories of people, including young men and women (18 and over), who have experienced abuse in a dating relationship. The video will also spotlight professionals and resources that help dating violence victims achieve justice and safety. If you live in Kentucky and have been the victim of dating violence and are interested in telling your story (and can do so safely), contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And stay tuned for new videos from OutrageUs!
