Domestic Violence Is…
A pattern of coercive behaviors exerted by an intimate partner over another with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control.
No matter what gender or sexual orientation the victim or perpetrator may identify themselves as, control and abuse are the common characteristic that defines the relationship as violent
1 in 3 women experience some form of intimate partner violence in given year
A form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade, adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and anyone forced into different forms of "labor or services," such as domestic workers held in a home, or farm-workers forced to labor against their will. The factors that each of these situations have in common are elements of force, fraud, or coercion that are used to control people. Then, that control is tied to inducing someone into commercial sex acts, or labor or services.

Know Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is code for slavery –involuntary servitude, debt bondage or peonage. Thousands of Northeast Ohio children, women and men are enslaved to commercial sex or forced labor annually. Trafficking violates human rights and is a stand-alone felony in Ohio.
Founded in 2002, the Renee Jones Empowerment Center (RJEC) is the only Northeast Ohio 501(c)(3) agency committed to providing life coaching and aftercare services to those with the courage to break the human trafficking cycle. RJEC shines light on the dark side of humankind and offers a comprehensive approach to getting lives back on track.
