"What can I do?"  "How can I help you?"  "What do you need from me?" "How do I make things better?" "What do you need in order to feel safe?"   Time and time again, victims of intimate partner abuse are bombarded with these questions when they disclose their abuse to a trusted person. The burden of answering these questions should not be on the survivors. WE as community members, as allies, as radical thinking people should be equipped with being able to process this information, and then support the survivor while also holding the perpetrator accountable for their actions. Too many times we scream and shout about corrupt politicians or police, but stay silent when it comes to holding the people within our circles accountable. We are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of our communities and in order to do so, the first step is to have uncomfortable conversations with one another.
