DVAM Domestic Violence Awareness Month

It's the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month! We're a strong group of voters who cares about survivors, families and communities.

During the last week in September, we all witnessed the heartbreak of survivors having to prove their trauma on the national stage. If you believe our elected leaders should have a deeper understanding of the violence impacting survivors, families, and communities, then you'll agree that it's never been a more important time to get civically engaged.

The personal is political. That's why we're asking you to get more involved in the months leading to midterm elections. Learn about the issues, ask candidates about their positions, and register to vote! Can we count on you to mobilize at this critical time?

Click here to get involved, and help spread the word to your networks!
