These Hands Don't Hurt

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The Women’s Center hosts events throughout the month of October to raise awareness of the prevalence and impact of Domestic Violence, and share resources and strategies to support those who have experienced Domestic Violence. Domestic Violence can occur in many different forms of abuse including physical, sexual, emotional, and economic. Domestic Violence is often hidden from public view and can be difficult for a victim/survivor to leave. Domestic violence can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, or ability.

Every October, join us for a variety of DVAM events including peer-facilitated learning opportunities, educational workshops, activism and healing through art, film screenings, podcasts and/or discussions.

Together, we can take a stand against Domestic Violence.
