October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Locally and around the state, individuals, youth, communities, schools, and agencies will be taking action to increase awareness about domestic violence.
The issue is critical. One in four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, and, on average, three women are killed every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.
Throughout October, communities across the country will mourn for those whose lives were taken by domestic violence, celebrate the tremendous progress victim advocates have made over the years, and connect with one another with a true sense of unity to end domestic violence.

•March Against Violence on October 12, 2012 @12:00pm. Meet at LVCSS parking lot.
•Informational Fair – October 12, 2012 at Cornerstone Church on 4th and North Ave, immediately following the March.
