Domestic Violence Awareness Month – October Schedule of Events
Be Loud, Be Proud October 01, 2021 @ 3:00pm – Virtual Event
Domestic violence not only exists in heterosexual relationships but as well as our LGBTQ+ relationships. We cannot assume the victim or one who causes harm can be easily identified simply by their physical traits or attributes. Let’s uncover the misconceptions of domestic violence and the LGBTQ communities. We are to provide support and healing for our LGBTQ+ communities.

Voicing Our Concerns
October 15, 2021 @ 6:00pm – Virtual Event
Whether it’s a call to the cops to protect your family from harm, or asking a judge for a restraining order, sometimes the only option we have to stay safe is to talk to law enforcement to try to get help. This can be stressful and scary when we have had violent or negative interactions with law enforcement in the past, or when our communities have a historically bad relationship with those hired to protect everyone. Caring, local professionals from the justice system are here to share their perspective and answer your questions about how you and your family can safely and effectively get the help you need if you find yourself in a situation where you need to call for help or seek legal protection.

Voices Of Those Who Stay
October 26, 2021 @ 3:00pm – Virtual Event
“Quite often victims are blamed for the abuse or harassed with the question, why don’t you just leave? Leaving isn’t as easy as you may think it is. There are many factors involved as to why someone cannot leave an abusive relationship. Along with those factors, there are many barriers that prevent someone from seeking the help that they need. We can provide the safe refuge for all survivors in their healing process and overcoming those potential barriers that make it difficult for them to escape the violence.”
