Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held throughout the month of October as a way to bring communities and advocacy organizations together in unity to end domestic violence for good.

Throughout the month of October, DCFOF will be wearing purple as a symbol of peace, courage, survival, honor, and personal dedication to domestic violence awareness.

Join us as we stand up to end domestic violence by wearing the color purple, spreading awareness, and attend upcoming community events.

Upcoming Events

For each Tuesday in October, we are offering a FREE training and discussion series for people in the faith based communities.  The 4-part series, Domestic Violence Awareness and the Faith Communities, will be held each Tuesday in October 2022 (4, 11, 18, 25), from 10am – 12pm.  The training location is in Room 2020 of the Administrative Courthouse, 1 Courthouse Drive, Denton, TX 76208.

 

This series will help raise awareness of domestic violence in congregations across the county.

Participants are invited to bring their lunch and learn about the complicated dynamics of domestic and sexual violence, their functions, and different types of violence.

Participants will

  • Understand that domestic violence (DV) is a taught behavior
  • Be able to recognize that DV is predictable and preventable
  • Be able to define it, see red flags and warning signs, and recognize myths surrounding domestic and sexual violence.

The more our community knows about domestic and sexual violence, the healthier and more safe families can be.
