This is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The Women’s Resource Center’s Colleen Arnold says they have displays with information, buttons and purple and white ribbons around town. She explains violence against women and children exists in everyday life and all societies and it takes many forms in our communities. She says the display of purple ribbons within our communities sends a strong message that there is no place for domestic violence in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces or schools and the goal of Domestic Violence Prevention Month is to raise awareness to inform the public of the consequences of domestic violence and the importance of standing up against it.
Arnold reminds you they will be holding their annual Take Back The Night event on November 25th at 5:15 in Pioneer Square on Main Street.
