Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2018. Take a Stand C. U.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! This year, we’re asking Champaign-Urbana to Take A Stand and actively work to end dating and domestic violence. Dating and domestic violence can include any form of psychological, emotional, verbal, physical, financial, or sexual abuse. In fact, more than half of people who have been physically abused, sexually abused, or stalked by a dating partner, first experienced abuse between the ages of 11 and 24. Join us in activities and events throughout the month to become involved in eliminating violence and abuse in our relationships, our homes and in our community!
