Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month; a time to celebrate survivors, honor those who have died, raise awareness, and confirm our commitment to preventing intimate partner violence in our community.  This year we are asking you to join us as an #EverydayAdvocate.

Everyday Advocates Every Day in October

Everyday Advocates don’t just hope survivors know they are cared about; we show support through our words and actions.  We have put together 31 ways you can be an #EverydayAdvocate this October – check out our list and join us as all of our actions work to change culture.  We will not tolerate domestic and sexual violence!

#EverydayAdvocate: GIVE Campaign

We couldn’t keep ALL of our services free of charge to victims of domestic and sexual violence without help from our community.  Help us with our biggest fundraiser of the year. The EverydayAdvocate: Give Campaign.  Learn more.
