OCTOBER IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
Domestic Violence is not just a “family problem.” It affects all of us, creating drug problems, crime, unemployment, mental illness, and destroying Tolowa culture and our children. But there is hope. We can make a difference.
On Wednesday, October 9th we will have our annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil at Howonquet Hall, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Chris Peters of Red Deer Consulting will be our speaker. He will talk about the tribal batterers intervention program he helped put together, and what we all can do to be a part of the solution. Come join us to make a quilt square, to learn, to remember, and to help make a difference.
During October there will be DV pins and pencils available at the Community and Family Services office (110 First St, Smith River). Also Clothesline Project t-shirts and a quilt on display in the front windows. Come see us!
