Thanks for raising awareness during DVAM

October is always a busy time of year for us and every other advocacy organization across the US. Would you believe that some people still don't know that it's Domestic Violence Awareness Month? Events like #rockpurple4dv12 help get the word out.

While we're working on #rockpurple4dv13, we want to remind you that domestic violence happens all year. The peak times sometimes seem to be during the holidays, after natural disasters and other stressful life experiences.

No matter what, there is never any excuse to be abused or to be abusive to anyone else. If you fall into either category, then you owe it to yourself to get help. Contact your local domestic violence program to find out what types of help may be available to you.
