By Billboard

Domestic violence, which is violence or abuse in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation, can be physical or psychological and affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation.

Recent statistics by the National Domestic Violence Hotline reported that on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.

No man or woman should ever tolerate an abusive or toxic relationship and that’s why many Latin artists have used their platform to take a stand against domestic violence. Listen to some of these powerful songs below.

If you or anyone you know is in danger, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233.
