Review for Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence Inc., Colorado Springs, CO, USA
I do NOT recommend BTSADV. For 3 years, I volunteered as a blog writer. I *was* enjoying myself, but after a while I realized things were changing. I was going to leave anyway. BUT THEN, in August 2020, they FIRED the founder?! Who does that? I'll tell you. ONE board member led the charge and ousted someone who poured her blood, sweat and tears into the organization and built it from the ground up. And you erased EVERY mention of her on the FB page, the website AND everywhere else?!? I also learned that BTSADV also feels that men cannot be victims! Um, excuse me? They absolutely can be!! I also have seen that blog articles are beginning to use she/her in reference to women being the victims. Way to exclude the men, BTSADV! Way to further alienate yourselves in the survivor community. It's disgusting what y'all have become. And to boot, y'all are not even treating the remaining volunteers with respect. Volunteers ARE your organization! Without them, y'all don't stand a chance to survive.
