October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held every October as a way to bring advocates across the nation together to end domestic violence. Advocacy organizations and communities across the country connect and unite through events, information sharing, and service opportunities to end domestic violence for good.

DVAM is a chance for anyone and everyone – victims, survivors, advocates, supporters, and political leaders – to unite in our work, show solidarity and support, and share our stories. With so many people speaking in a unified voice during the month of October about domestic violence, we raise our collective awareness about this critical issue. Only through collaboration will it be possible to end domestic violence.

This year, DVIS is providing a calendar of daily activities to participate in DVAM.
