Public Awareness Campaign

What is Domestic Violence?

“Domestic violence is a crime that ruins families, weakens communities and undermines military readiness. With this campaign, we are calling on our service men, women and their families to Take a Stand Against Domestic Violence.”
Dr. David S.C. Chu
Under Secretary of Defense for
Personnel and Readiness
United States Department of Defense

Domestic violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, religion or gender and can affect people of all socioeconomic backgrounds, education levels and military ranks. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH), in partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD), has launched a public awareness campaign to “Take A Stand Against Domestic Violence.”
