Domestic Violence Awareness

GFWC is a national leader in the fight to end domestic violence by raising awareness about this social issue. By supporting existing activities, working with various established programs, and initiating educational opportunities for club members and local citizens, the goal of the GFWC Signature Project: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention is to increase awareness and prevention of the widespread occurrence of domestic abuse in communities across the nation. GFWC members will speak with one voice:

In addition to intimate partner abuse, the GFWC Signature Project: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention also works to
combat child abuse, teen dating violence, and elder abuse. Elder abuse can take various forms such as physical, psychological,
emotional, sexual, and financial abuse. It can also be the result of intentional or unintentional neglect and abandonment. Dating
violence is a pattern of controlling and abusive behaviors of one person over another within a romantic relationship. It can include
verbal, emotional, physical, sexual, and financial abuse. Dating violence can occur in any relationship. It has no boundaries and
crosses all lines of race and socio-economic statuses.
