October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Did you know that:
- Nearly 1 in 3 college women say they have been in an abusive dating relationship.
- 30% of LGBT youth report dating violence, compared to 9% for heterosexual youth.
- 58% of college students say they don’t know what to do to help someone who is a victim of dating abuse.
Domestic violence can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class or ability. Each year, the Women’s Center recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) with programs and events throughout the month of October. Events include peer-facilitated learning opportunities, educational workshops, activism through art and a film screening and discussion. Check out our full list of programs below. We hope that you will be able to join us for this informative month of events.
