Wear Orange Day is an annual opportunity to support healthy relationships and raise awareness of dating violence among youth as part of TDVAM.

This year’s theme was “Wear Orange 4 Love” and OVW shared photos via Twitter and helped raise awareness using #VYEM, #OVWTDV, and #teen DVmonth.

They also do not take things personal or make assumptions.

Domestic violence is a serious violent crime that includes both physical and emotional abuse.

Many victims suffer in silence, afraid to seek help or not knowing where to turn.

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides a framework and funding for the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) to respond to violence against AI/AN women to help protect and promote justice in tribal communities and strengthen victim services, including annual government-to-government consultation with tribal nations.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).

This February, join OVW, our federal colleagues, and grantees in breaking the cycle of violence and promoting healthy relationships among our youth.
