October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! Each October, you can help CCADV and DV programs around Colorado to raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end it.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2015

Our Goal for 2015: To raise awareness about how the portrayal of women (and femininity) in the media deeply affects not only how society values women, but also how we devalue everything that gets labeled feminine by the culture – qualities like compassion, cooperation, empathy, intuition, and sensitivity.

Most of us consume 10 hours of media a day.  Do YOU ever wonder what the message behind the message is?  Decide for yourself.  Empower yourself. Read more about media literacy.
