SWIVL has been actively out in the community describing the relationships among animal cruelty, child abuse, and domestic violence. While there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of organizations that inform and educate the public regarding violence, SWIVL promotes the view that violence is indivisible; violence towards any feeling, being should be not be tolerated under any circumstance. According to Dr. Kathleen Wishnick, Co-Founder of SWIVL, we must stop violence at all levels: animal cruelty, child abuse, and domestic violence. Child abuse and domestic violence is on the increase because we have ignored the powerful relationship between animal cruelty and all other forms of violence. When it comes to violence, it doesn’t matter if nonhuman animals speak or walk on two legs, all that matters is that they feel pain. Your tax-deductible support will help SWIVL end violence through community action and legislative support.
