Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2016

Domestic violence affects more than 12 million* people in the United States each year.

This issue cannot be ignored. To create change, we have to talk openly and acknowledge how domestic violence affects our communities, our families and our lives. We can’t just turn away. We have to See DV.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to shed more light on an issue that has claimed too many lives, and we’re inviting everyone get involved.

Join us this October to raise awareness of abuse, one story, one statement, one survivor at a time.

Because there is only one way to end domestic violence: together.
