Domestic Violence Awareness Month

In 1989, the United States Congress acknowledged October as “Domestic Violence Awareness Month.” This is monumental as every 9 seconds, a woman is beaten by a spouse/significant other while 1 in 4 men are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner.  This month my organization, Healthy Relationships Network, will be taking time to acknowledge …
