Women’s Living ExpoMORE INFO
The Women’s Expo with A Cause is dedicated to helping communities throughout the US raise awareness of Domestic Violence and to effectively tackle this challenge. We are pleased to be affiliated with TESSA in Colorado Springs and support their ‘IT’S NOT OK’ Campaign to foster a community free of domestic violence and sexual assault.
NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTHDVAM TESSA EVENTS
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which first began in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to connect battered women’s advocates across the country.
Domestic violence affects millions, both women and men, of every race, religion, culture and status. It’s not just punches and black eyes — it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.
Since the Violence Against Women Act passed in 1994, we’ve come a long way. This landmark legislation, led by then Senator Joe Biden, combined new provisions that hold offenders accountable and provide programs and services for victims. Between 1993 and 2010, the overall rate of domestic violence dropped nearly two-thirds and state laws have reformed to address issues such as dating abuse in the workplace, stalking, employment discrimination and more.
Join TESSA and other partnering agencies in raising public awareness about domestic violence and how to prevent it in our community. Throughout the month, there are a variety of educational and interactive events planned. We invite you to attend as many events as you can because we need everyone’s help in ending domestic violence.
