This year's campaign theme is #Every1KnowsSome1 because, with 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experiencing domestic violence, it is likely that everyone knows someone who has been impacted by domestic violence.
Someone you care about is likely experiencing domestic violence, whether you can see it or not. Domestic violence doesn’t always leave visible bruises. It can also bruise your credit, financial well-being, and your mental and emotional state.
Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate; it can happen in every community, and victims can be of any gender and gender identity, race, or socioeconomic status.
October gives up an opportunity to shine a light on this abuse as a public health crisis and encourages everyone to support efforts that help break the cycle of abuse and support victims in taking control of their lives.
