Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) evolved from the “Day of Unity” held in October 1981 and conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became an entire week devoted to a range of activities conducted at the local, state, and national level. The activities conducted were as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but had common themes: Mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, Celebrating those who have survived, and Connecting those who work to end violence.

These three themes remain a key focus of DVAM events today. 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. In 1989, the U.S. Congress passed Public Law 101-112 designating October of that year as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Such legislation has passed every year since with National Coalition Against Domestic Violence providing key leadership in this effort. Each year, the Day of Unity is celebrated the first Monday of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The first Monday of October 2017, the Sault Ste. Marie City Commission helped us celebrate by making a proclamation that the issue of domestic violence is important to each and every commissioner and it will not be tolerated. Even though DV Awareness month is celebrated in October, we believe this issue is important to educate on throughout the entire year.

Domestic Violence Awareness Walk Oct 09 2017

 

Please join us on October 9th for the Annual DV Walk as we raise awareness with our sisters in the movement, the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians Advocacy Resource Center. We will start registration at 5:00pm and the walk starts at 6:00pm. We will be meeting at the Niigaanigiizhik Building on Ice Circle Drive. The first 300 registrants will get a hooded sweatshirt. We will have food and beverages, hope, love, and fellowship.

 

 

 

Together, we can end domestic violence
