LOVE DOESN’T HURT: Love Doesn’t Hurt is a program that creates awareness about intimate partner violence. We clarify and define the signs of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse. Empower participants to identify abusive patterns in relationships, increase self-actualization, raise personal accountability to choose when to stay or leave, and share resources for participants who are in abusive relationships, and inform them on the appropriate ways to support friends and loved ones in abusive patterns.

TBYB is committed to the recovery and restoration of peace, pleasure, and self-love to women’s bodies and subsequently their lives.
