October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to start a conversation about this important issue in all aspects of your life. It’s also an opportunity to show those impacted by domestic violence that they are not alone.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed in October 1987.  In 1989, Congress passed Public Law 101-112, officially designating October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, victim advocates, allied professionals, survivors of abuse and their loved ones, as well as the surrounding community come together to mourn the lives lost to domestic violence, celebrate the progress that has been made to end this epidemic, and connect with others working to create change.

Purple Thursday is the third Thursday in October, and it’s a national day of action during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Everyone is encouraged to wear all things purple as a symbol of peace, courage, survival, honor, and personal dedication to domestic violence awareness.
