October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – Help Spread The Word!

By on Thursday, October 1st, 2009 in News

Nearly 25% of surveyed women and 8% of surveyed men said they were raped and/or physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or date at some time in their lives. Domestic violence is wrong. It affects not only the direct victims, but their children and families as well.

Working together, men and women can change attitudes and perceptions about domestic violence. Let’s all work together to end the violence. Help spread the word!
