Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic violence is complex and dangerous. It affects all classes, races, marital statuses, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Domestic violence is more than physical abuse. It is a pattern of behaviors that one partner uses against the other to gain power and control in the relationship. These behaviors may include isolation, financial deprivation, or stalking. They can also include emotional abuse and threats to hurt them, their children, or their pets.
Philadelphia envisions a city free of domestic violence.
