Welcome to Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a special time when we come together to talk about a really important issue that affects many people and families all around the world. During this month, we try to spread the word about how common domestic violence is, recognize the strength of survivors, and work together to stop it from happening.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month reminds us why it's so crucial to learn about this issue, support those who've been through it, and speak up to make our communities safer and better for everyone. Let's work together to create a world where no one has to live in fear or face violence in their own homes.
