Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held throughout the month of October as a way to bring awareness and help end domestic violence. We ask YOU, our community, to unite in our work to end domestic violence because we cannot do it alone. It is time to show solidarity, support and share the stories affecting our community not just those being victimized.
What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence (also called intimate partner violence, domestic abuse, or relationship abuse) is a pattern of one partner controlling another through threats and abuse. Domestic violence includes a wide range of abusive behavior including physical, emotional, financial and psychological, and it is un-discriminatory of age, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status or gender.
