2nd Annual ‘Domestic Violence Awareness Event’ at the Sugar Bar
Domestic Violence Awareness month evolved from the first day of Unity observed in Oct, 1981 by the National Collation Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The day of unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at local, state, and national levels.www.ncadv.org
