October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The COVID-19 health crisis has caused a tremendous spike in incidents of abuse. Even as lockdown restrictions are lifted, we know that the abuse will not simply end, that this remains a critical time for survivors and that education, awareness, and bystander intervention are desperately needed. This October, join us in spreading awareness, activating bystanders, and sharing information that can help those who are experiencing violence during this unprecedented crisis.
On October 15, 2020, support survivors of domestic violence by walking a mile in the location of your choice anytime during the day. Post photos on your social media as support for survivors and victims of domestic violence. And don't forget to tag NAM. #YouAreNotAloneDV #NAMHelps #NAMisHere #PurpleEmpowerment #WalkForSurvivors
If you have any questions, please contact NAM's Family Violence Center Hotline at 281-885-4673.
