Domestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed in October 1987.  In 1989, Congress passed Public Law 101-112, officially designating October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, with similar legislation passed every month since. The SHARE: Education Team invites you to get involved in our education, prevention, and response efforts.
