Ending domestic violence across Oregon

During a public appearance on September 30th, Oregon Governor Kate Brown took the time to refute some harmful myths about intimate partner violence, while also disclosing that she herself has experienced domestic abuse. We applaud Governor Kate Brown for her courage in coming out as a survivor of domestic violence and are grateful for her leadership on this vital issue.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2016

By proclamation of Governor Kate Brown (link is external), October 2016 is recognized throughout Oregon as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We encourage all Oregonians to learn more about this issue, familiarize yourself with the resources available in your community for survivors of domestic violence, and show your support for the fundamental human right of safe and loving homes for all. 

The coalition’s 2016 Domestic Violence Awareness Month campaign focuses on the theme of home. Using art by Favianna Rodriguez, our posters speak to the importance of safe and loving homes for all. Materials will be mailed out to member programs and partner organizations beginning of September, and are also available for download. If you have questions about the theme or would like to discuss events you are developing, please contact Choya Adkison-Stevens, 503-230-1951 x311. 

You’re also invited to share events with us by filling out this form (link is external), and we'll add them to our statewide DVAM events calendar.
