October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic violence is a prevalent problem all across the nation. Every minute, nearly 20 Americans are abused by an intimate partner. That equates to more than 10 million men and women over the course of the year. Alliance for Children and Families is proud to stand by these men and women and stand up against the abusers.
Domestic violence can cover a wide range of situations. The United States Department of Justice takes domestic violence to be any pattern of abuse enacted by one partner in order to gain power over the other. Abuse can include physical, sexual, emotional, economical, or even psychological. These types of behavior can intimidate, humiliate, and harm the victim.
It’s important to raise awareness to the issue of domestic violence in order to increase education. The more the public knows about this issue, the more they can identify abusers and support the victims. We need to speak up for those who are afraid to do so and provide support for those who do. Contact the Alliance for Children and Families for ways that you can help make a difference in the lives of those suffering from domestic violence.
