Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), a time for all Iowans to come together, recognize, and support the stories and experiences of individuals who have been impacted by intimate partner violence. 

#Every1KnowsSome1 impacted by domestic violence. One in three women, one in four men, and nearly half of LGBTQ+ people will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.

High rates of domestic violence are not private, individual problems; they require community solutions. By acknowledging this reality, we can collectively work towards ending domestic violence and creating safe, healthy communities for everyone.

Join us throughout October to learn how you can get involved with events and activities and to learn more about victim service programs in your community. Sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and check our website for the latest updates all month long. 

Get Involved!

More updates, information, events, and announcements will be made as we get closer to October. Check back soon and follow us on social media.
