October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month VAWA icon purple ribbon

Domestic violence is multifaceted and includes physical, psychological, sexual, and economic abuse of a victim and is often hidden from public view. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This month is dedicated to bringing greater awareness to domestic violence and its effect on women and children; however, we encourage you to promote awareness all year round. This page has resources and tools, OVW-funded events and webinars on the topic of domestic violence, and ideas to promote awareness in your community.
