Every October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about relationship abuse.

Everyone deserves a healthy relationship.

I stand in solidarity with survivors.

Relationship abuse is about power and control, and there are usually more than one form of abuse happening in an abusive relationship.
