October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Started in 1981 as a “Day of Unity,” this time has been set aside to honor and celebrate survivors, to empower victims, to encourage advocacy and to remember those lost to the violent acts of others. In cities across the country, people come together to show their support and speak out against domestic violence.
Domestic violence is a serious criminal and legal health issue in the United States and governments in many states are working hard to find solutions to this problem and ways to decrease instances of abuse, violence and dysfunction in domestic settings.
Efforts to increase the criminal classification of domestic abuse from misdemeanor to felony and strategies to protect victims from their abusers are being implemented and discussed in various government groups and across political party lines. The horrors of domestic abuse must not go unnoticed and citizens and officials in the US are recognizing it more and more.
