In addition to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which evolved when the first Day of Unity was observed in October 1981. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation working to end violence against women and their children.  In 1987 the first national toll-free hotline was created – The National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). In 1989 the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month Commemorative Legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress.  For more information or help go to
