Awareness Months


We are committed to providing both community-wide or audience specific programming, initiatives that increase audience knowledge and share information and resources to prevent violence, promote safety, and reduce perpetration.

These ongoing strategies are sustained over time and focus on increasing understanding of topics relevant to addressing dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Through multiple strategies, we engage multiple audiences across the community. 

  • Domestic Violence Awareness Month – October
  • Stalking Awareness Month – January
  • Dating Violence Awareness Month – February
  • Sexual Assault Awareness Month – April

Escalation Workshop


Escalation is a film that honestly and compellingly tells the story of an abusive relationship –– from its sweet beginnings to the tragic end. The authentic depiction of unhealthy behavior escalating into violence helps you understand and recognize the early signs of relationship abuse. The 40-minute screening is followed by a guided discussion led by a trained facilitator.
