YC Spotlight: “#1BillionRising”

On average, over 10 million women and men are victims of domestic violence each year in the United States, with women ages 18-24 being the most at risk.

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, this week’s YC Spotlight looks back at a One Billion Rising event in Harlem, where local activists got together to educate the public about domestic violence statistics and share support resources.
