The Teamsters Human Rights and Diversity Commission (HRDC) recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a commitment to addressing this crisis. We stand in solidarity with everyone impacted by domestic violence.

As a union that represents health care and law enforcement workers, the Teamsters know firsthand domestic violence is a grave problem that permeates our society. On average, 20 people per minute are abused by an intimate partner in the United States. That’s 10 million people each year. We mourn for those who have suffered in silence, celebrate the resilience of those who have overcome, and support all efforts to end domestic violence.

This October, we urge everyone to:

The Teamsters Union is committed to advocating for a world where individuals can live without fear and relationships are built on respect and love.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, you’re not alone in your struggle. Contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233.
