Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)!
DVAM was first established in October 1987 for the purpose of uniting the people and
organizations who were working in the movement to end domestic violence, and to raise awareness about issues of domestic violence. Since the initial launch of DVAM, noteworthy progress, advocacy, and change has been made in this movement.
Each year, the NC Governor releases a proclamation for DV Awareness Month. Here is the Proclamation for 2017 from Gov. Roy Cooper: Governor’s Proclamation for DV Awareness Month.
