October is becoming my favorite time of the year! We are just wrapping up all the activities and events we’ve hosted during our best-to-date Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). It started off with proclamation ceremonies and being recognized by the Cities of Fullerton and Placentia. Then we had the opportunity to teach couples about healthy conflicts in relationships at our date night event, X’s and O’s. Then I was honored to be invited to speak with U.S. Representative Katie Porter during a roundtable discussion on trends and issues of domestic violence in our communities. And finally, a group of fine gentlemen came together to share their life experiences and how the way they were raised influences their current understanding of masculinity at our Man[ing] Up night.
Oh – and did anyone see our cool banners hanging up in downtown Orange and Fullerton? If you’re around downtown Orange and Fullerton, you might get a glimpse of our signs! If you’re itching to do something for DVAM, it’s not too late! We still have a few tickets left for our upcoming ¾ Time Dueling Pianos event on Thursday, October 24th. Click here
