Community forum and interactive learning experience Oct. 1 at Mullis Center
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, it is a time for our community to come together and build awareness and a partnership to end family and relationship violence.
Domestic violence touches every person in our community and society as a whole; it violates a person's dignity, safety, and basic human rights.
