Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), observed every October, is a time for communities to unite against domestic violence. During this time we remember those who have lost their lives as a result of abuse, celebrate those who have survived, connect with those who work to end violence, and raise public awareness about this ongoing issue in our community.
