Child Abuse Prevention Month Tool Kit
Since 1983, April has been National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The observance serves to educate parents and the community about warning signs of child abuse and neglect, helping resources and to reinforce that the safety and well-being of children is a shared community responsibility.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month, or DVAM, is observed each October to raise community awareness and highlight Department of Defense, or DoD, and civilian resources available to build healthy relationships, support victims and children, and promote offender accountability. The Family Advocacy Program, or FAP, is DoD's lead agency and part of the coordinated community response to domestic violence in the military. Check out this toolkit to learn more.
Learn how to develop healthy relationships and how to recognize, avoid or get out of abusive relationships through the Love is Respect website. Explore the site for more information on dating basics, abuse, finding support and taking action.
When voting season comes around, it's easy to think up reasons not to go to the polls. We can convince ourselves with excuses like "I'm too busy," or "I don’t know where to send my ballot," or, an all-time favorite, "My vote doesn't count, so what's the point?" It's easy to believe that in an election where millions of people are voting that one vote doesn’t matter, but this is a myth — a myth this article plans to bust!
