October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month; a time to celebrate survivors, honor those who have died, raise awareness, and confirm our commitment to preventing intimate partner violence in our community. The first step to creating a world without violence is simply letting people know that it is a problem that exists in our community – and that we care enough to do something to stop it!  We hope to remind the community that violence is another public health issue affecting too many members of our community. Our Domestic Violence Walk is one way we try to end domestic violence by walking and speaking with individuals and letting them know they have options.
