Domestic violence thrives when we are silent, but if we take a stand and work together, we can end it. Here are some things you can do during domestic violence awareness month to raise awareness and help end domestic violence:
- Wear purple and use this as a way of telling others why ending domestic violence is important to you. National Purple Day is Oct. 20.
- Speak out – talk to a friend or family member about domestic violence
- Support nonprofits working against domestic violence directly or by buying
- Educate yourself – find a book from this online book club that raises the issue and learn more about the cause.
