False Allegations Awareness

America’s legal system has become awash in false allegations of abuse, including false accusations of domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault. False allegations are harmful because they:

  1. Take away scarce protections and services from real victims
  2. Can be devastating to the falsely accused
  3. Undermine due process and cause misuse of our legal system
  4. Force children into single-parent households, placing them at higher risk of social pathologies

Making a false accusation of domestic violence is a crime, and persons who make such allegations should be held liable for their actions.

June is False Allegations Awareness Month. Throughout the month, events are held around the country to raise awareness that making a false allegation of abuse is a form of abuse.
