Call the police immediately if you see someone with a black dot on their palm.
When you see a black dot, you know that individual is in danger.
The Black Dot Campaign is a Facebook-based initiative that seeks to honor domestic violence survivors.
The black dot on their hand signifies a call for help.
Domestic violence victims can signal for help by drawing a black dot on their palms.
If you see someone with a black dot on their palm, you should help them and report it to the authorities.
The Black Dot Campaign’s leaders have made the following declaration:
“The black dot on the hand lets professionals know you’re a really vulnerable domestic violence survivor and that you need help but can’t ask because your abuser is watching your every move.
In just 24 hours, the campaign has reached over 6,000 people worldwide and has already helped 6 women.
Please spread the campaign and post a picture of your hand with the black dot to show your support to all survivors of domestic violence.”
A domestic violence survivor shares her story:
“I’m heavily pregnant and the baby’s father is very abusive. With words, his hands
I’ve been petrified for so long and even more with the baby coming soon.
I was at the hospital yesterday; he was with me; he never leaves my side anymore.
I had to have an examination so the consultant asked me to lie on the bed and draw the curtain. I learnt over and took the pen out of his pocket, pulled his hand over to me and wrote HELP ME. I didn’t have to say a word.
This campaign gave me the strength and the idea how to ask for help. I am now safe somewhere else thanks to that consultant and the black dot campaign. Thank you, 1 week to go until my due date and I am finally safe.”
