Each year, October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). Domestic Violence affects individuals around the world every day. It does not discriminate. It occurs regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic status or culture. While we have seen a change, we must still do more to provide protection and justice for survivors and prevent violence from occurring. During DVAM, we stand together with domestic a buse survivors, celebrate our progress in combating these despicable crimes, and resolve to carry on until domestic violence no longer exists.
