This movement – our movement to end domestic violence – is rooted in social justice and fueled by passion. Survivors, advocates, and allies are all working together, driven by a common goal but inspired by our unique experiences and worldviews. Some are new to this work, others have dedicated a lifetime, but all of us bring value to advancing and shaping our mission; defining and redefining what social change looks like and how we can achieve it together. This October, for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the NRCDV is asking: What does the movement mean to you?
Health Cares About Domestic Violence (HCADV) Day reaches healthcare and advocacy partners with information about the critical importance of universal education to promote healthy relationships, address the health impact of abuse and offer warm referrals to domestic violence programs.
