Domestic Violence Awareness Month

As American communities reel from tragic mass shootings, JWI is spending October – Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) – tackling gun violence, an issue that threatens the safety of victims of abuse every day. The often unnoticed overlap between gun violence and domestic violence requires our immediate activism. Please sign our petition today and urge Congress to expand the background check system to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals like domestic abusers.

Tell Congress: Expand the background check system to protect victims of abuse!
