Domestic Violence Awareness Public Forum 

Crimeline for the Hamptons will host a Domestic Violence Awareness forum during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, on October 22nd, at Lane Memorial Library. 

A panel of experts from A Safe Place/SASS, Seacoast Youth Services, law enforcement, and religious leaders will lead the public discussion and answer questions.

Statistics reveal that 33.4% of women and 24% of men in New Hampshire have experienced a physical assault by an intimate partner. Our goal for this event is to let people know that there is community support available for victims of domestic violence. Domestic abuse affects so many people. They need to know that they’re not alone.

This event is open to the public, light refreshment will be served.



*New on-going campaign*
Follow us on Facebook for upcoming gigs featuring the 1bluestring

It is estimated that 1 in 6 men experiences unwanted or abusive sexual violence in his life time.  Most often these events occur before the age of 18.

Stigmas associated with male sexual abuse often cause incidences to go unreported, leaving victims feeling isolated, ashamed and unsure of where to turn.

Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) partnering with 1BlueString, is on a mission to spread awareness by cultivating a climate of support, empowerment and recovery through outreach in the music community. #1BlueString is a symbol of solidarity and a conversation starter, to promote education and compassionate dialogue to help break the code of silence surrounding male sexual abuse.

We are inviting local musicians to participate in our awareness campaign by:

  • Agreeing to replace their low E string with our 1BlueString for a minimum of one gig. (Strings are available in Electric .046 and Acoustic .054).
  • Agree to take a photo or have their photo taken, stringing the string and/or playing. 
  • Use the provided script at least one gig to help raise awareness about childhood male sexual abuse and how their audience can get help locally. SASS will promote their gig on their social media platforms.
  • Allow for SASS to record them at a gig using the string and provided PSA
  • Use the photo and/or video on their own social media platforms with a link to SASS’s site. Please use the hashtags #1BlueString  #SASSNH  #NoMore
