Your response can save lives. If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence, you can get help for them.
As a community, we have the responsibility to help others by safely interrupting when we witness violence. Do not assume that others will step in. To help, you can follow the A.R.T. of Safe Interruption.
The Signal for Help is a simple one-handed gesture that victims of violence can use to discreetly show they need help and would like someone to check in on them, without alerting the perpetrator.
This signal is done by first holding up one hand with the thumb tucked into the palm, and then folding four fingers over the thumb.
Share the Signal for Help with others to help raise awareness. This simple act could help someone in the future.
