Celebrate Domestic Violence Awareness Month

 In Events, News

October is here, which means it’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)!

This year’s campaign theme, #Every1KnowsSome1, strives to highlight how common domestic violence is and that it is more than physical violence. This issue is more prevalent than most realize, one in four women and one in seven men will experience domestic violence in their lifetimes.

As a society, we all have a role in changing the narrative about what domestic violence is, to whom it happens, and how we can support those who are experiencing it, and, ultimately, prevent it entirely. Every1KnowsSome1 who is impacted by domestic violence, and Every1 has a part to play in supporting our work to end domestic violence.

The generous supporters listed below have shown survivors that they are not alone by sponsoring The Purple Gala on October 13, 2022, at the Atlantis. There is still space available, let’s come together and take action to support survivors.

We can’t wait for all that’s in store at The Purple Gala, and we hope you will join us. By being present at The Purple Gala you are dedicating yourself to breaking the cycle of violence. If you would like to become a sponsor, donate an item, or buy tickets, please contact Alyssa Ropell at (775) 329-4150 or via email at alyssar@domesticviolenceresourcecenter.org
