#DVAM 2021 No Survivor Justice without Racial Justice | Domestic Violence Awareness Project

Domestic violence is prevalent and we can all take action to support survivors in our communities. Awareness + Action = Social Change! The #1Thing that will end domestic violence is our collective power. Healing from domestic violence requires our collective actions, voices, and support. Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) funding supports each US state, territory, and assists 252 tribes who provide 9,123,443 million shelter nights for survivors, serving 871,271 women; 303,293 children; and 84,719 men each year.

SAFETY ALERT: If you are in danger, please use a safer computer and consider calling 911. The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 / TTY 1-800-787-3224 or the StrongHearts Native Helpline at 1−844-762-8483 (call or text) are available to assist you.
