October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Across America, events and activities raising awareness about domestic violence are being planned. Participants in such events range from elected officials and police officers to battered women's advocates and concerned citizens. They all share a common goal: to raise awareness about the cost and prevalence of domestic violence, the need for prevention measures, and the available services for victims of domestic violence. For more information about planned events, please visit Family Violence Prevention Fund's Newsflash, September 24, 2004.
