Relationship Violence Awareness Month

October is Relationship Violence Awareness Month

Every October, Sexual Violence Response recognizes issues of violence in intimate relationships and the impact they have on all of us, issues with particular urgency after three years of unprecedented personal, societal, and economic challenges on a global scale.

We ask you join us in observing Relationship Violence Awareness Month (RVAM) as we remember, honor, and celebrate survivors, advocates, and activists through programming and events that affirm that relationship violence has no place in the Columbia University community.

I am & I can logo
No matter who we are, we have the power to make a change.
From small steps to big leaps and everything in between, whoever you are or wherever you are from, you CAN help build a compassionate and accountable community where relationship violence can end.



Thank you for joining us for Relationship Violence Awareness Month. Stay tuned for ways to join us for RVAM in 2024!
