Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is an opportunity to shed more light on an issue that has claimed too many lives and affected our communities, our families and our lives. DVAM lets us take the time to educate ourselves about how to support friends or family members who are fighting to free themselves from abuse. Visit the DEA Victim Witness Assistance Program page for information and resources.
