October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Check out our DV Awareness Month Calendar of Events at http://bit.ly/dym3J4

This is a time to raise awareness by holding events in memory of those who have lost their lives at the hands of their abusers. It is also a time to celebrate all survivors of intimate partner violence.
