October Awareness Month
One of the most worrying and consistent trends during the COVID-19 pandemic is an increase of domestic violence among the American Indian and Alaska Native groups. Governments around the U.S. are taking unique approaches this year in how they act to stop the violence and help victims to be heard during times of uncertainty.
October is nationally recognized for Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. It is a special time to celebrate survivors, honor those who have passed on, raise awareness, and stand with one another (while social distancing and wearing masks) in our commitment to preventing violence in partner relationships across Alaska.
