It’s not uncommon in this area that families have a seasonal vacation home.

Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “Our lives cease to exist the day that we become silent about things that matter.” Domestic Violence Awareness Month offers an opportunity for communities across the nation to speak out against an epidemic that threatens the very fabric that unites our communities and families.

The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children.

In 1989, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month Commemorative Legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress.”
