October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – Help Spread The Word!
Nearly 25% of surveyed women and 8% of surveyed men said they were raped and/or physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or date at some time in their lives. Domestic violence is wrong. It affects not only the direct victims, but their children and families as well.
Working together, men and women can change attitudes and perceptions about domestic violence. Let’s all work together to end the violence. Help spread the word!
If you or someone you know is being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800–799–SAFE (7233) or 800–787–3224 (TTY).
