Nationally, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical abuse by an intimate partner. But because domestic violence can look different with different people, it can be hard to estimate exact numbers.

Domestic violence is a pattern of intentionally violent and/or controlling behavior used against a family member or a dating/intimate partner.

ZPAP serves as our Sorority’s effort to support the March of Dimes in their Prematurity Awareness Month® campaign by targeting our community’s religious congregations.

​During ZPAP, a religious leader, a designated congregation member, or a member of the Zeta family shares information with the congregation about prematurity.
