October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a month devoted to raising awareness of the societal issue of domestic violence (including dating, intimate partner, and relationship violence). We take this time to honor survivors of domestic violence and inspire people to take action to end domestic violence.

Throughout the month of October, the Counseling and Wellness Center will be hosting special #dvam events and posting on the @bewellwwu Instagram account about actions you can take.
