Too Many Minnesota Families Touched by Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Awareness MonthFifty-two people died last year in Minnesota at the hands of a spouse, significant other, former relationship, parent, child, grandparent or other family member. Many more survived the violence, only to have it continue. During this Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize and honor Minnesota families impacted by domestic violence.

There is a way out.​​​

Gas Leaks Can Be Deadly No Matter Where They Happen

Debris from a house destroyed by an explosionThat new mailbox or tree you planted in the yard this summer is all safe and sound, thanks to the fact that you called 811 before you dug. And now that you're likely done digging for the year—and the chances that you'll strike an underground gas line are zero—the chances of a gas leak on your property are zero too, right? It turns out natural gas leaks can happen inside your home, too. 

Our blog​ will tell you the best ways to avoid a gas leak and what to do if you think you have one.​​

How DVS Document Pre-Verification Will Save You Time

/blog/PublishingImages/DVS-document-preverificiation-08162021.jpg

​When it's time to get your Minnesota driver's license – or renew your old one – you have a few choices. A REAL ID can do more, like get you into​ government buildings and allow you to fly domestically without a passport, for example. But the federal government requires more documentation to get one. So Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) created an online pre-application, complete with document pre-verification, to help save you time.

Learn how​ the system works and how it has already helped thousands of Minnesotans.​

​​

Don’t stay silent. Support survivors and speak out against domestic violence.

​“I want people to take domestic violence seriously. Don't let your kid's story be my story. Get some help. Don't' let your friend's story be my story."

DPS Assistant Commissioner Booker Hodges talks about being a domestic violence survivor and his mother's tragic death from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.

Hodges urges anyone in an abusive relationship to get help. Experiencing domestic abuse, sexual violence, or sex trafficking? Contact the Minnesota Day One Crisis Line at 866-223-1111 or by text at 612-399-9995. More info: dayoneservices.org.
