MEMORANDUM

Posted: August 9, 2018 11:32 AM
From: Representative Sheryl M. Delozier
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution recognizing the month of October 2018 as “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” in PA
 
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce a resolution recognizing the month of October
2018 as “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” in PA.

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior used to establish power and control over an intimate partner. Domestic violence often causes emotional harm to victims, their children, other family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers. It also affects men and women in all racial, ethnic, religious, educational, social and economic backgrounds. It takes many forms, whereby victims are often subjected to abuse, harassment, threats, vandalism, trespassing, burglary, theft and stalking.



Introduced as HR1046
