It was first observed in October of 1987 and the Toll Free National Domestic Violence Hotline was established later on that year. As stated on the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Website:
“In 1989 the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month Commemorative Legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress. Such legislation has passed every year since with NCADV providing key leadership in this effort.”
According to American Bar Association, approximately 1.3 women and 835,000 men are affected by Domestic Violence each year.

Author, Fox News Contributor, and Freedom Works Outreach Director Deneen Borelli wrote about the issue on her website, sharing this video and also added her own personal story to it as well.

…….”Although October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we should raise awareness about this problem year-round because not all instances of domestic violence make the headlines.

Domestic violence can happen to anyone. I should know.
Years ago I was a victim of domestic violence and the ordeal reminded me about the importance to be self-reliant.
In my book Blacklash: How Obama and the Left are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation, I described the challenges I had to deal with on my own from being attacked and then stalked by a former significant other for over a year.”
