October is “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” I have heard many people saying that they had no idea an only thought it was “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”. It’s more than time we continue to raise our voices so that everyone knows just as many women die of violence against them every year as breast cancer victims do.
I know that we as organizations in the “Domestic Violence” movement don’t have the funds for advertising like the Breast Cancer movement does but that does not mean we don’t have a voice. I personally am making it my mission to inform as many people not only in my community but across the U.S. that “Domestic Violence Awareness Month is October”.
Collectively, we can all make a huge difference by spreading the word, and breaking the silence and cycle of abuse. We ALL can be a huge part of educating others and stepping up for victims.
Violence against Women MUST END!!!! We MUST all do our part to make that happen.
Thank you all who continue each and every day to make change and empower victims.
