Abuse Is Wrong In Any Culture: Inuit

Emergency Services for Abused Women and Children

IMPORTANT—if you call any phone number in the list below, and your phone has a re-dial feature, then call some other number after calling the police, crisis line, women's safe shelter or victim services worker. Or if you called from a cell phone, don't forget to clear the number from your list of past calls. That way the abusive person won't know what you're doing or planning.
