Mayor Demings' SealOrange County, Fla – In recognition of National Domestic Violence Month in October, Orange County Mayor Demings will launch a community message video, “Together We Can End Domestic Violence,” at a news conference held in conjunction with Harbor House, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Orlando Police Department, and others.  The news conference is scheduled for October 4, 2021, at 1:00 pm at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The video message is one of many recommendations approved this year by Orange County’s Domestic Violence Commission and the Orange County Board of County Commissioners. The recommendations were developed to tackle domestic violence in the community.

The theme “Together We Can End Domestic Violence” captures personal stories from individuals who have experienced this type of violence.  Their heartfelt stories illustrate that domestic violence can happen to anyone and offer messages of hope and healing.

Domestic violence is not a private family matter. Rather, it is a public health and safety issue that spans gender, age, sexual orientation, and religion, and affects people of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

In the United States, one in three women, and one in four men are victims of domestic violence. An average of 20 people in the United States experiences intimate partner physical violence every minute. This translates to more than 10 million abuse victims annually.
