Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) is proud to join organizations across the country in recognizing the month of October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience physical violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime. National Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a time to recommit to the premise that all individuals should be able to live their lives free of violence. Throughout this period, TRLA advocates will be participating in local community events designed to raise awareness of the issue of domestic violence and the resources available to help victims escape their abusers.
On social media, TRLA will feature stories from victims we’ve helped become survivors, important facts about domestic violence in Texas, and insights into our work on this important issue. You can follow the events on our Facebook or Twitter accounts. You can also follow the hashtag #DVAM to follow the recognition nationwide.
