Family Violence Awareness

Each shirt represents a woman, child or man killed due to domestic violence since January 1, 2007 in the state of Minnesota. Domestic violence victims account for over 25% of violent crimes in Minnesota. According to the 2002 Minnesota Crime survey, 80% of victims of domestic violence in Minnesota did not report the incident to law enforcement.

My goodness, that's such an awful statistic. Great idea to display t-shirts like this - really hits home. Shocking.

Shocking statistic. I wish there was a lot less t-shirts on that line.
