We are excited and eager this year because we are hosting a major event to bring awareness to Domestic Violence and to provide resources for those who are in need of help for themselves or a friend. The HUSH No More Domestic Violence Awareness Walk and Community Outreach, will be held on October 19, 2019, from 8:00AM – 12:00PM, at Sandlapper Elementary School, 1001 Longtown Road, Columbia, SC 29206. Events include a walk in the community, free food, local community organizations, free massages, vendors, and a Survivors Tribute. All ages are welcome!

HUSH No More is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2019 to provide a platform for Survivors to share their experience with the “HUSH Topics” and to receive support from other Survivors and Victim Advocates. As well as provide training that will lead to awareness and prevention in our community. HUSH Topics are those topics that individuals, families, and organizations have a hard time discussing, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, sexual harassment, etc. Statistics show that these topics happen in 1 out of 6 households and the numbers are growing. Our vision is to create a world where Survivors feel empowered to HUSH No More, and share their stories with others to create knowledge that leads to safer communities.
