Description

Domestic Violence Awareness Virtual - October 26, 2019

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month...more than four in ten Black women experience physical violence from an intimate partner during their lifetimes. White women, Latinas, and Asian/Pacific Islander women report lower rates. We are excited to partner with The Butterfly Society in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as our local community partner. Their mission is to educate, advocate for legislation,provide direct services and to partner with other agencies to end Domestic Violence. For more information about The Butterfly Society, click here.
