Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October 1 – October 31 CDT
Domestic Violence Awareness Month, observed in October and sponsored by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, is a crucial time to educate men and women about the dangers of domestic violence. Domestic Violence Awareness Month encourages victims or loved ones of victims to contact authorities or hotlines in order to make their cases known. #metoo
In 1995, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, a leading organization aimed at preventing domestic violence cases and educating those who are victims of domestic violence, convened other organizations, such as the Family Violence Prevention Fund, The National Domestic Violence Hotline, The National Network to End Domestic Violence and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in an effort to support such programs’ education and awareness efforts. Collectively these organizations join together in the month of October to educate the masses concerning domestic violence.
