October is #DVAM2013

It’s that time of year again: in the midst of the US government shutdown, let’s not forget it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. There are a variety of events going on, and your local programs and coalitions should have listings of events. For some of the national events recognizing #DVAM2013, check out VAWnet’s listing of programs on BlogTalkRadio that sound fantastic. You can also print out this flyer (PDF) for staff and/or colleagues. See also dedicated pages over at NNEDV, Futures Without Violence, and the President’s 2013 Proclamation at whitehouse.gov (that, of course, isn’t currently being updated due to the shutdown).
