October is a busy month, campaigns to raise awareness are allocated to this month, such as domestic violence and breast cancer. Lately domestic violence (DV) has gained much public attention due to several high profile perpetrators and victims. However the majority of cases occur in obscurity right in our back yards, in our communities, and amongst individuals that never get public scrutiny.
Keeping the conversation alive. Advocating for more community resources for victims and the perpetrators. Training advocates in our communities to be a resource for victims will help to strengthen the community. Victims need a place to turn to for help as they may be overwhelmed.
Stepping Together Inc is an organization working toward keeping the conversation alive and getting more help for the victims.
