October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month- October 2017, the Shu’-‘aa-xuu-dvn (In A Good Way Place) Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Program would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the thousands of people across the nation in raising awareness about the prevalence of domestic violence.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone, anywhere, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background. It isn’t a personal matter or even a family issue, but an alarming and pervasive problem that impacts victims, abusers, family members, friends and entire communities. Despite this fact, most cases of domestic violence are never reported.
With the dedication of local agencies and the continued community support we can all help to create a brighter future free of violence and abuse.
Shu’-‘aa-xuu-dvn is pleased provide opportunities during the month of October to get involved, take a stand against domestic violence, and express your continued support for those affected by domestic violence and their families.
Attached are a few of the community events that will be hosted locally by the Shu’-‘aa-xuu-dvn DV/SA Program, please feel free to share the flyers and/or for more information regarding the events contact Andromeda Lopez.
