October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month....how much media attention have you seen this month? Are you advised of programs or activities in your community to help you become aware of what it looks like? Have you seen any colors of purple circulating to bring up the question of why this color is being worn?
Let's talk about it and how you can help bring awareness one person at a time!!!
October is the month supposedly set aside for Domestic Violence Awareness. However, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness and the issue of Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence is overshadowed.
It is very important that we push to keep domestic violence on the plate of medias through whatever means are available to you. It is an epidemic and seriously out control and destroying families and relationships.
Join us as we share information regarding what you can do this month to support advocates who are against domestic violence and fighting to make sure that it is kept on the front and not the back burner.
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 NNEDV to raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence. Here is what you can do:
Wear purple -- the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month -- during the month of October and use this as a way to tell others why ending domestic violence is important to you.

We’d like you to be aware of the following statistic…
According to national statistics taken from the Department of Justice, 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Data also indicates that young people between the ages of 16-24 experience domestic violence at the highest rates. Nationally, domestic violence related call to emergency assistance lines are reported every 14- 17 minutes.

The work of Promotoras in their communities to end violence against women is one of the most effective culturally specific approaches that exist in our times. Promotoras started in Latin America as a way of reaching communities from within, on issues mostly related to health and wellness.Promotoras serve as liaisons between their community, health professionals, and others. As liaisons, they often play the roles of advocate, educator, mentor, outreach worker, role model, and translator. This approach has been very effective in Latin America and its strength is also evident in communities across the U.S.
Join us as we hear the voices of Promotoras from a number of Latin@ organizations in a Q & A session . Speakers will be representing Enlace Comunitario, Voces Latinas & Visión y Compromiso.
Presenter: Dayanara Marte.
Often times advocates, service providers, and most individuals in helping roles bring their own experiences as survivors of violence, oppression, neglect and poverty into the work. These are often the reasons why they do the work in the first place. The impact of such experiences provides both strength and challenges in how we do our work and how we listen to community and provide support. These factors have the potential for making us susceptible to needing support, creating self care action plans and being mindful on all levels, mind, body and spirit. Join us for a conversation about how to take care of ourselves as we observe this year’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Survivors should never have to choose between practicing their spirituality and seeking help or safe refuge from domestic violence service providers.

We will live tweet the discussion at #endviolence and host a follow-up Q&A with the presenters on Twitter immediately following the program. (Follow @NationalDVAM and @VAWnet for details.)
