A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

WomensLaw.org — providing legal information and resources for survivors of domestic violence

WomensLaw.org is an extensive website launched several years ago to provide state-specific legal information and resources for women living with or escaping domestic violence or sexual assault. They also provide a confidential Email Hotline to offer direct support to survivors, their advocates, friends and family members.

 

In addition to legal information they have several pages of safety tips for various situations (including tips specifically for children), advocate and shelter locations for each USA state, national hotlines, and information on recognizing abuse in both intimate relationships and the workplace. They also maintain a Facebook page and they tweet at @WomensLaw.

 

We have added WomensLaw.org  to our Resources on the following pages:

Children of Domestic Abuse

Cyber Safety and Social Networking

Domestic Violence Agencies and Websites Around the World

Legal Issues

Safety Planning

Sold house I was to live in while having existing residence condemned. PLEASE HELP. I Will be homeless, now camping.

    • Lv, your comment speaks volumes. I wish we had the resources to help you but we don’t. I’m super stretched already.

      The injustice that is being done in the court system is horrific.

    • Dear Lv, God sees what your abuser and his enablers have done, and He is wrathful about it.

      I know this passage of scripture won’t solve your housing problems, but it might encourage you spiritually:

      Jeremiah 5:26-31 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

      for wicked men live among my people.
      They watch like hunters lying in wait.
      They set a trap;
      they catch men.
      Like a cage full of birds,
      so their houses are full of deceit.
      Therefore they have grown powerful and rich.
      They have become fat and sleek.
      They have also excelled in evil matters.
      They have not taken up cases,
      such as the case of the fatherless, so they might prosper,
      and they have not defended the rights of the needy.
      Should I not punish them for these things?
      This is the Lord’s declaration.
      Should I not avenge myself
      on such a nation as this?

      An appalling, horrible thing
      has taken place in the land.
      The prophets prophesy falsely,
      and the priests rule by their own authority.
      My people love it like this.
      But what will you do at the end of it?
