October is 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.

Sign our petition and tell legislators to close loopholes in our gun laws to protect women.
25% of women will be victims of domestic violence. Yet less than 1% of corporate giving goes toward the issue.
