DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
Every October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month is observed to honor and recognize survivors and those who have lost their lives to domestic violence.
Often, domestic violence can be a silent struggle making the problem seem less pervasive than it truly is. That is why raising awareness is crucial. Ending domestic violence must be done through a community effort. Please take the time this October to help us achieve our mission of ending domestic violence in Teton Valley.
Listed below are a number of different ways you can participate in 2023 Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The Clothesline Project is a poignant symbol of strength, resilience, and unity.
Survivors and their allies are invited to create personalized
t-shirts that represent their experiences with domestic violence.
Each shirt serves as a canvas for sharing your story, expressing emotions, thoughts on healing, and fostering a sense of community.
Participating in the Clothesline Project can be incredibly healing and empowering.
It allows survivors to break the silence, raise awareness, and let others know they're not alone.
It also sends a strong message to the community that domestic violence is unacceptable and must be addressed.
