October Print Page


DVAM began in October 1981 with the "Day of Unity", conceived by the

National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

The group's mission is:

  • Mourning those who have died due to domestic violence
  • Celebrating those who have survived
  • Connecting those who work to end violence

Public Law 101-112  passed in 1989, designating October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month for that year. Legislation has continued to pass each year.
