October Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Oct 03, 2019

Domestic violence does not discriminate. Anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender can be a victim – or perpetrator – of domestic violence. It can happen to people who are married, living together or who are dating. It affects people of all socio-economic backgrounds and education levels.

Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish or force them to behave in ways they do not want. It includes the use of physical and sexual violence, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and economic deprivation. Many of these different forms of domestic violence/abuse can be occurring within the same intimate relationship.

On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.
If you believe you have been a victim of domestic violence, dating violence and/or stalking, contact CNM Security to file a report.
If you have an emergency situation, call CNM Security's emergency line at 224-3001 or 911 from a CNM phone. For non-emergencies, call CNM Security at 224-3002.
You should follow-up with a call to the Dean of Students at 224-4342 to schedule an appointment
