#BeTheChange This Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, an annual campaign committed to raising awareness of and preventing domestic violence. Domestic violence affects people of all races, genders, and economic backgrounds. Domestic violence includes the physical, psychological, and emotional abuse of an intimate partner. Domestic abuse varies dramatically in relationships but the constant components are rooted in one person asserting power and control over the other. This month is all about engaging the community and individuals on how we can prevent domestic violence.
