October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) nationwide. The original purpose of DVAM was to connect domestic violence advocates around the country and region. As the month grew in popularity, it has expanded to involve everyone interested in learning about domestic violence, reporting instances and breaking the cycle of violence.

During the month of October, YWCA Pierce County holds Domestic Violence Action Month – moving the focus from understanding the issue to taking action to prevent and end domestic violence in our community.

Share your support for YWCA Pierce County and ending domestic violence by participating in community events throughout the month. When we come together, we have the power to build healthy relationships and a community free from violence. 

Thank you for another wonderful DVAM! Please check back in September 2019 for information on DVAM 2019.
