NASW Observes October as Domestic Violence Month

Social workers, domestic violence advocates, health care providers, law enforcement, survivors, and others across the nation have come together in their communities to raise public awareness about domestic violence. In October 1981, the observance of domestic violence began as a single Day of Unity. Later in October of 1987, the observance was expanded to identify October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. President Obama made the official announcement in a proclamation available at: www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Presidential-Proclamation-National-Domestic-Violence-Awareness-Month/
