Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October 1-31, 2017
Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, help YWCA Dayton raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence against women and children. Plus: 2017 marks 30 years of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Follow the conversation on social media with #DVAMturns30.
