YWCA's Week Without Violence aims to help women

YWCA's Week Without Violence aims to help women

The Kammy Mae Foundation, a domestic violence awareness organization, is planning a fundraiser at Mt.

Lovegrave added, "It's an overwhelming amount of calls, and it just shows me how much more we need to try to get out there and help people - and how much more we need to try to get out and educate people about domestic violence".

"On Sunday night, women took to social media to say "#MeToo", confirming their places among the staggering numbers who've experienced sexual violence. One woman had to call the police four times while she was waiting for a safe space.

An artist helped mark the event with a live-painting during the ceremony which had a purple wreath in the background, a symbol of the 146 Texas women who were killed by an intimate partner a year ago. Representatives from the Women's Center of Montgomery County will be available to discuss domestic abuse and related issues.

Harbor House CEO Michelle Sperzel told News 6 that the most risky time for victims is when they leave their abusers. Artwork with a theme of peace created by local middle and high school students will be on display.Jean Kowalski, YWCA spokeswoman, said this week's events are designed to increase awareness of the devastating effects of domestic violence in society."Persimmon Purse Bingo" is scheduled from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday at Norco Fire Co., 144 W. Schuylkill Road.

"This month, once again, we are reminded that we can change our culture for the better by standing together against the quiet tolerance of domestic violence; and refusing to accept the unacceptable", said Capt. Christopher Martin, Commanding Officer of NAS Pensacola.

"We need a really significant investment if we're going to resolve this and stop services having to make decisions about which client is more worthy of a bed."
"We all have a role in ending violence against women and girls".

The Little Falls Domestic Violence Prevention Committee welcomes all township citizens to participate in this important work of preventing domestic violence in the community.

Teresa Lacey, community educator for Hopeful Horizons, was the keynote speaker at the Domestic Violence Awareness Rally held Wednesday, October 18, 2017, at MUSC.

Despite being in denial about her situation, she agreed to attend a course in the city for victims. Today, she is searching for employment and trying to move her life in a positive direction. She asks you contact Tri-County Council to say you will be there to read a name in advance of the vigil.

"In all honesty if he gets out, I can not go through anymore - I will beg him to take me back as I can not live with the abuse I get trying to stay free of him". While recognizing that, statistically, women are more likely to fall victim to domestic abuse than men, the article also states that it's still theorized that men are less likely to report abuse due to societal stigma. "So this would help give nationwide enforcement ability and, at the same time, build up the availability of shelters that can also protect your pet". They can come in and get a temporary 50-B the same day.
