Too Many Minnesota Families Touched by Domestic Violence

​​Fifty-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.​​​​
