Domestic Violence Action Month promotes awareness for one month, but your support keeps the fight against DV happening for the other 11. Thank you!
Whether you read a book like No Visible Bruises, saw our displays, attended the vigil, or posted a yard sign, we hope that October helped you learn more about DV and the harm it does.
We had small but enthusiastic groups attend our book club/soup suppers and were grateful for this time to share.
Thank you to the university students who helped transform downtown (pictured, right and below).
Earlier in the month, another group helped a client clean, paint, and repair her new house.
Wild Willow and Safeway Floral helped us bring beauty to the sad narratives with buckets of blossoms, and St. Vincent de Paul made the stories more tangible with donated shoes that wouldn’t be sold.
Pastor Paul and Mary Eaves Mitchell made sure that the rain- soaked stories, shoes, and flowers were disposed of properly after five days on the walks.
“Several people,” he said, “stopped to say how meaningful and powerful the displays were.”
