Out of the Darkness:

Confronting Domestic Violence in our Community

 During National Crime Victims' Rights Week and National Sexual Assault Awareness Month

 

How far along have we come to stop domestic violence?  It still permeates the victims' family, social and work life and perpetuates abuse in our community.  What else do we need to do?

* How a diverse array of agencies collectively address DV from different angles

* What is being done to prevent DV by both agencies and individuals
