Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence continues when we are silent. In October 1987 Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) launched nationwide as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations to end domestic violene. This year marks the 30th anniversary of DVAM. Much progress has been made to support survivors, hold abusers accountable, and create social change to end domestic violence. Today one in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime and we believe these statistics are too high.

Will you join with us this month (and beyond) to raise awareness of this important issue in our community? Everyone can play a part. Starting a conversation about this issue can help raise awareness to show domestic violence is not tolerated in our community.
