October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

In honor of DVAM, the Women’s Center has organized several events to increase domestic violence awareness:

These Hands Don’t Hurt and the White Ribbon Campaign Tables
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so visit our awareness tables to participate in two events: “These Hands Don’t Hurt” allows you to stamp your handprints on a banner, creating a visual statement against violence against women, while the White Ribbon Campaign symbolizes a commitment to ending violence against women. Come sign a pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women. Sponsored by the Violence Prevention and Response Project.
Wednesday, October 14, Health Sciences Building, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Friday, October 30; Royall Hall, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

    I love these programs and I look forward to them every year. I especially look forward to the White Ribbon Campaign even more because it is so interactive. I put my hand on the banner again this year and I cannot wait to see how many hands are on the completed banner.
