DOMESTIC Violence Month
Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2021

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), and we’re calling the community in because it’s on all of us to end domestic violence. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, survivors have faced heightened barriers to safety that will leave long-lasting impacts, and they need our support on their journey to healing as they rebuild their lives after abuse.

This DVAM, you can support survivors in your community by learning ways to be an active bystander. Domestic violence affects us all, and it is crucial to know the signs of abuse and learn where to get support or how to provide resources to someone experiencing dangerous situations. Together, we can create a safer Rhode Island for everyone.

Men can help build a world without violence

This June, we invited Rhode Island men to learn more about the role they can play in preventing abuse.

Men in our community can help build safe, healthy spaces where all of us can thrive. Our 2021 public awareness campaign called men in to show up for all people, including women, in positive ways.

Teen Awareness
Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month

This Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAPM), we invited Rhode Island students to share what a healthy relationship means to them and submit their questions about safe and respectful dating. Creating an open space for youth, teens and young adults to learn and talk about healthy relationships is an important part of preventing teen dating violence. Through social media, we invited the community to learn more about healthy relationships, circumstances unique to LGBTQ+ relationships, digital consent and other safe dating topics.

Visit the RICADV Teen Center to learn more about our 2021 campaign.
