Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Spotlight on DCVLP

By Juliana Levinson on 10.17.17

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), which takes place every October, is an opportunity to increase awareness about the signs of domestic violence. It is a month for empowering survivors, connecting advocates and coming together to stop the violence that affects one person in the U.S. every 20 minutes.  For more stats, download the National Statistics Domestic Violence Fact Sheet from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.


DVAM was born out of the “Day of Unity,” which was organized by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in October 1981. By October 1987, the day had turned into a full month of programming and outreach for survivors and advocates. Two years later, Congress formally recognized the month. The themes of DVAM have not changed since the first “Day of Unity”. DVAM has three main goals: mourn those who have passed from domestic violence, celebrate the strength of survivors and connect those who work to end domestic violence.

As a long-time AdvantEdge Workspaces client and renowned advocacy group, the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project (DCVLP) works every day to break the cycle of domestic violence. They provide pro bono legal assistance to domestic violence survivors and at-risk children. In most cases, effective legal representation is imperative for a person trying to break free from a toxic relationship. DCVLP goes above and beyond their work in court. They run a weekly domestic violence resource clinic and assist clients with other needs, such as housing. DCVLP also provides crisis counseling, safety planning, case management and referrals to other resources a survivor might need.

Then comes the stress of finding something to wear (which hopefully doesn’t require ironing!), packing food for the day, and preparing for that dreaded commute to work.
