Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence Awareness Month, observed in October, is a crucial time to educate men and women about the dangers of domestic violence. One of the primary objectives during Domestic Violence Awareness Month is to encourage victims or loved ones of victims to contact authorities or hotlines in order to make their cases known.
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.
