DVAM – What are You Prepared to Do?

This year marks the 30th anniversary of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). What started as a Day of Unity evolved into something greater with the courage and commitment of advocates at local, state and national levels.
Today, the battle against domestic violence continues because we are still mourning those who have died at the hands of their abusers; we still have women (and men) who are shamed and suffering in silence as well as advocates operating with minimal resources.
We have come a long way but the finish line is no where in sight. 1 in 4 women being abused in the US is NOT okay. An average of 24 people per minute being victimized via rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner is NOT okay. We can’t stop. We won’t stop. What are you prepared to do?DVAM2018
