Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). During this month, AVI helps the TCNJ community to identify and de-escalate domestic/dating violence. We also provide programming around healthy relationships, gender socialization, and ways to support survivors of domestic/dating violence.

AVI partners with the One Love Foundation and hosts several Escalation workshops throughout the month. To learn more about the One Love Foundation, click here:

Stop by our programs or tables to pick up some AVI swag and wear purple throughout the month to show your support for DVAM. See below for a calendar of DVAM 2019.

Due to COVID-19, DVAM 2020 may look differently than typical programming months, but you can find all of our education and programming on our social media pages. Scroll to the top of this page to find links to our social media platform in the menu bar.
