Join Author Jason Irby in Observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month which was established to bring awareness to domestic violence, sexual assault, and dating violence, while also providing support, information and resources for individuals affected by domestic violence.

Jason Irby, author of So You Want to Stop Violence? continues to take a stance against violence. Irby stands in support of victims of domestic violence by observing Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Each year, Irby, brings awareness to domestic violence through his annual Domestic Violence Awareness events to honor victims of domestic violence.


Domestic violence awareness is also a tier within Irby’s Help, Hope and Healing initiative that provides resources for overall wellness in the community.


If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please seek help by contacting the national Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233), your local law enforcement office, or you should tell a family member or friend.
