Let’s show the nation that California is united in our resolve to end domestic violence. Join the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (The Partnership) for Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October, and help us turn the Golden State purple!
We’ve all seen unprecedented attention around domestic violence in the news over the last few weeks. This prompted a 37% spike in calls from California victims seeking assistance from the National Domestic Violence Hotline between September 7th and 8th.
Our colleagues have said that in 40 years, this is perhaps the largest and most public discussion we’ve seen. Let’s keep the conversation going and work together on solutions to this public health crisis, which affects all of us.
Football players—and all athletes—can play a powerful role in modeling healthy relationships--and so can you.
