This month's article by NWCAVE Founding Advisory Council Member Debra K. Adams, MA, PDV, CWS


Because domestic violence is too prevalent, we now have our month dedicated to raising awareness. We want everyone to know about domestic violence and the hope is to prevent or eliminate it entirely. 
Welcome to October, it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! Let's begin by sharing what it is exactly. In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. That same year marks the initiation of the first national domestic violence toll-free hotline, 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Across the country, families, and friends of victims have adopted the purple ribbon to remember and honor their loved ones who have lost their lives at the hands of a person they once loved and trusted. Shelters and local battered women's programs use the purple ribbon to raise awareness about the crime of domestic violence in their communities. Read on...
