New Campaign Aims to Bring More Education and Awareness to Domestic Violence Issues

PHOENIX— During the month of October the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office will be joining with partners nationwide to support Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Our state has seen the damage this issue can inflict not only on victims, but on the community as a whole. In 2014, there were more than 100 domestic violence-related deaths in Arizona.

“We hope to engage the community in a new way this year, in hopes that those living the active nightmare of domestic violence will know they have an advocate,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “We also want to focus on education, so that those not currently affected by domestic violence can better understand this problem and its effects.”

Over the next four weeks, MCAO will be actively communicating through social media including Twitter and Facebook to help our communities better understand domestic violence and to help victims learn about the resources available in Maricopa County. We will be partnering with different domestic violence assistance groups each week to promote a list of needed items for victims who have left dangerous living situations. During the month, we will also be working closely with our law enforcement partners to help deter repeat domestic violence crimes in their neighborhoods.
