October was first declared National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in 1989. Since then, October has been a time to recognize survivors of domestic violence and be a voice for its victims.

Domestic violence is prevalent in all communities and affects all people, regardless of age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion or nationality. Physical abuse is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior as part of a much larger and systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can lead to physical injury, psychological trauma and even death. The devastating consequences of domestic violence can span generations and last a lifetime.
