On October 27, 2021, Mayor de Blasio signed Executive Order 85, creating and implementing a citywide domestic and gender-based violence (DV/GBV) workplace policy to strengthen trauma-informed responses and support across agencies for City employees who are experiencing DV/GBV as part of the City's commitment to a healthy and safe workplace that prioritizes employee wellbeing.
During October's Domestic Violence Awareness Month Campaign we launched "The ABCs of Healthy Relationships" interactive web-based toolkits to help elementary school students develop healthy relationships with their friends and classmates as building blocks for healthier relationships.
