Awareness in Action
Members of ACTS Domestic Violence Services Staff were proud to be in attendance as the Prince William Board of County Supervisors issued the Proclamation on National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, October 2020.
Domestic violence affects millions, both women and men, of every race, religion, culture and status. It’s not just punches and black eyes -- it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.
