Domestic Violence Awareness Month

DV October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, an opportunity to raise awareness about the prevalence and cost of domestic violence, the need for prevention, and the services that are available to victims and their families.

See examples of various Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities in different locations.
