North Carolina Governor Patrick McCrory declared October as the “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” in North Carolina in an effort to recognize the negative impact that domestic violence has had on the lives of far too many citizens of the state.
McCrory noted that “the number of North Carolinians affected by domestic violence each year is staggering.”
Domestic violence can manifest itself in many ways – be it mental, emotional, financial, or physical abuse.
Data from the North Carolina Department of Justice showed that around 119 women, men, and children died because of domestic violence-related homicides in 2014 in the state.
