National Domestic Violence Awarenesss Month


Company: National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
Web site:

Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women's advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.

Domestic violence is something that often remains in the shadows. With awareness and support, those who may need to seek help can get the assistance and support they need.
