National DV Awareness Month: 

Domestic Violence Awareness Month was launched nationwide in October 1987 as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues while raising awareness for those issues. Over the past 30+ years, much progress has been made to support domestic violence victims and survivors, to hold abusers accountable, and to create and update legislation to further those goals. Check out the  National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website: 2021 Domestic Violence Awareness Month (ncadv.org)
