Relationship Violence Awareness Month 2022

Nationally, October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  It was established to recognize victims who were affected by relationship violence and to connect them to resources, educate the general public about the realities of violence within romantic relationships; and to de-stigmatize conversations about relationship violence.

The WGAC has rephrased “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” to “Relationship Violence Awareness Month”, as we believe the term better reflects experiences of young adults who experience violence outside of a domestic and/or marital framework. During the month, we work with campus partners to bring awareness to dating/relationship violence and educate on the different ways we can help end it. Our primary focus is on cultivating healthy relationships. We do this by providing students with tips and tools on how to manage, and find recourse if they or somebody they know is in an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
