October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).

Throughout DVAM, we encourage you to explore resources to better understand what gender-based violence is, how it affects our communities, and ways you can take action.

For survivors, we will also offer information that can support you as you work toward your safety, healing, and wellness.

Each week, we will highlight information for a different campus partner that we are collaborating with to prevent violence and center survivors.

Please check these out, save the ones you find valuable, and share!
