You are NOT Alone - Domestic Violence Awareness Month

One of our Locals pointed out to us that as a women owned business it is important to be vocal about where we stand on largely female impacting issues. With that being said, as October is also Domestic Violence Awareness month we want to make sure that we project the importance of self love, self care, and open communication on the negatives that impact us…

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS AN ISSUE.

WE STAND WITH THE FIGHT TO END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is the use of a pattern of abuse to maintain power and control in a familiar relationship. Abuse affects all populations, regardless of their age, race, sex, nationality, religion, ability, socioeconomic status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

(That means it can happen to any of us!)

What is considered abusive behavior?

Abusive behaviors may include:

  • Physical Abuse: Use of physical force in a way that injures or puts others at risk of injury

  • Emotional Abuse: Use of words, tone, actions, or lack of action meant to control, hurt, or demean

  • Sexual Abuse: Forced or coerced sexual act or behavior motivated to acquire power and control

  • Financial Abuse: Use or misuse of financial or monetary resources of the partner or of the partnership without the partner’s freely given consent

  • Spiritual Abuse: Using victim’s religious or spiritual beliefs to manipulate

  • Identity Abuse: Using personal characteristics to demean, manipulate, and control partner; comprised of “isms” around race, gender, sex, age, sexual orientation, etc.

(How do we use our power? To help or to cause harm?)

Why don't victims leave?

The decision to leave an abusive relationship is difficult, and a victim's reasons for staying may be numerous, including:

  • Fear of physical harm, retaliation, dealing with the legal system, or changing their situation

  • Love for their significant other

  • Lack of resources (housing, money, accessible programs)

  • Isolation from supportive friends and family members

  • Familial pressure

  • Normalization of violence in the relationship

  • A sense of guilt or responsibility for the abuse

  • A desire to help their abuser

  • Potential public shaming or humiliation

  • Optimism that things will change

  • Religious belief and values

(Individual issues have individual outcomes, non-judgmental support is key.)

If you want to help us create awareness tag us in your 20 second video on instagram or Facebook (@copywritemag) video to let us know why you stand against Domestic Violence. (Email that video to copywrite.mke@gmail.com to be apart of our #SociallyResponsible 2019 campaign video).

Valerie Lighthart - I'll Be Damned

It’s October! Which means it’s officially time to put away your summer clothes and pull out the sweaters and jackets. I’m sure these brisk and gloomy days in the Mil have put us all in #ChillMode lately, but this soft song will be a great refresher to help you get through these rainy days, while also putting a little pep in ya step during this crisp season.

Shoutout to Valerie Lighthart for sending us her song “I’ll Be Damned”, produced by Immortal Girlfriend, and for attending our recent #InstaMeetMKE at Company Brewing.

This song is available on all streaming platforms and you can look forward to her EP this Fall!

Events like this are important for us creatives because it encourages collaboration! There is no competition and egos are left at the door. My personal favorite thing about the InstaMeet is meeting other creatives who are passionate about their art, no matter what their avenue is.

Meet the NEW Intern, Carrie Mahone

We have reached out to the community to find an intern to become apart of the CopyWrite Family. For fall 2018 we will be adding a vibrant new “Journalism” focused intern to our #SQUAD, who stood out with her creative video application, impressive resume, and pop of personality.

Say what’s up to Carrie!

Carrie

Carrie Mahone, 22 – born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. She attends UW-Milwaukee and will be graduating this upcoming December with her B.S. in Journalism and Communication. However, she’s not your regular journalist. Carrie’s vivacious personality, and inquisitive mind aligns with her passions of natural hair, urban culture, positivity and creativity. Right now, she is looking to build her resume within the Milwaukee community to lead her experience into bigger markets like Los Angeles, New York City, or Chicago. Furthermore, Mahone, is setting her sights to carve out her own lane into the entertainment industry and make her mark. 

Be looking out for her as she explores the local & all things Urban MKE!

Slay with The Style Hub

At CopyWrite, we think that your style is a quick snapshot of self.  Since it can quickly tell people who you are without you having to speak.

In the music industry (and sometimes in life), the way you dress and your appearance can get someone to take that extra second to stop and ask "Who is this person? And what do they do?" It's just how it works. Having a style, a steez, a look; can get you far; as long as you have the talent to match.

This is why we're introducing you to The Style Hub, an online directory offering an one-stop shop for style.

A women-owned and operated business, The Style Hub is there for all your style needs.

As a stylist, The Style Hub works to feature talented stylists in the Milwaukee area increasing the stylists awareness and credibility as well as showing off their talents by hosting styling events in hair, beauty and fashion.

Check out some of the photos from their last event below.
