Welcome to Forget Me Not Advocacy Group

Together, we can bring domestic violence out of the shadows
and create change.

Welcome to the first edition of the FMN (Forget Me Not) Newsletter!  I would like to take a moment to introduce you to the origins of Forget Me Not Advocacy Group and catch you up on all the amazing things that have been happening here in South Florida.  

My name is Amy, and I am a survivor of a 16-year domestic violence relationship and the founder of Forget Me Not.  It all started in 2012 when I began writing the forget me not blog. My goal was to use it as a personal healing space, and let others know that there is hope after domestic violence. 

Domestic Violence affects us all. It affects men, women, children, and the elderly. It affects pets, the rich, and the poor. It affects our community.  It is responsible for 2 million injuries and 1,300 deaths each year in the US. It affects more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined.  It is my hope that we can help create change in our community, and abroad, through education and community events.  

Forget Me Not offers several workshops, speaking engagements, and classes geared toward our young people and community at large.  We also offer peer-support groups and one-on-one support for those healing from abuse.  It is through your support that we will be able to continue our mission in South Florida and expand our reach beyond our state borders.

Thank you for continuing to participate, share, and support Forget Me Not's mission.  Let's say No More to domestic violence and bring change to our community.

Lovingly,

Amy
