Rise Together for Safety and Justice 2022

September 2022
Berkshire County

Thank you for joining Rise Together for Safety and Justice. Violence is a community problem and together we are part of a community movement to end domestic, sexual, and dating violence.

Every hour of every day, Elizabeth Freeman Center provides life-saving, life-renewing help to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families. We reach over 3,000 people from almost every city, town, and hamlet in Berkshire County and we know that we are only scratching the surface.

When COVID hit, we never closed our doors. Our hotline calls increased over 77% and the situations are more dangerous and difficult than ever before.

With offices in Pittsfield, North Adams, and Great Barrington and staff at Probate and Family Court, Northern Berkshire District Court, Southern Berkshire District Court, Central Berkshire District Court and at both the Adams and Pittsfield police departments, our trained staff are available.

Because whoever we are, however we look, wherever we go – we all deserve safety and justice.
