Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Since 1981, the month of October has been recognized by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to victim advocates across the country. Most of us don’t know what to say or have a lack of knowledge about domestic violence and sexual assault which plays a large part in why these issues persist in our society.
