First observed in October 1981 as a national “Day of Unity,” Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held each October as a way to unite advocates across the nation in their efforts to end domestic violence.
Communities and advocacy organizations across the country connect with the public and one another throughout the month to raise awareness about the signs of abuse and ways to stop it, and to uplift survivor stories and provide additional resources to leaders and policymakers.Learn More

What is the Little Black Dress Campaign?
Each October, the Junior League of Northwest Arkansas participates in the “Little Black Dress Initiative” to bring awareness to domestic violence and symbolize just some of the struggles survivors and family members in this situation may have. Participants raise awareness around the limits that domestic violence can play on resources, options, and opportunities for employment; and the work that JLNWA is doing to help end the cycle of domestic violence by wearing the same black dress or outfit for five consecutive working days.
