Purple Thursday National Domestic Violence Awareness Day

Thursday, October 19, 2023 @ 12:00am - 11:59pm

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, also known as DVAM, and DVAM means another chance to raise awareness and unite individuals and organizations working together to prevent and end domestic violence across the country.

Here in DC, we honor DVAM with our Spread Love DC campaign, a unique way to engage community members, advocates, young people, and families to raise awareness and promote safety, respect, and accountability. You may see advocates “Spreading Love” through chalking messages at local metro stops on the morning of October 2 or at numerous events over the month, check out the calendar of activities below.

We hope you’ll join us! Together, we can spread love and prevent domestic violence.
