Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Break the Cycle has launched several initiatives to celebrate.

Through our campaign Speak.Act.Change, we are calling on high school students nationwide to secure their schools and their futures.

This month, we also published the graphic novel He Loves Me… He Loves Me Not/Me ama… no me ama, to help Latino teens learn more about dating violence and the resources available.

With national attention on domestic violence, now is the time to take action. Join us in our mission to engage, educate and empower youth.
