October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), and now is the time to Stand Up, Speak Out and Show Support for victims, survivors and communities

impacted by domestic violence.


Now is the time to be #silentnomore

For 31 days, we challenge you to raise awareness and advocate for victims, survivors and communities impacted by domestic violence. This is a crime that can impact anyone at anytime, and it is our responsibility
to say enough is enough, and utilize our voices to prevent this crime from impacting more individuals. 


Together, we can prevent domestic violence in Iowa.
