October is national Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the purple ribbon is the recognized symbol for bringing attention to this issue and showing support for victims and survivors.
Haven House, the local domestic violence services agency, is conducting different activities and events during the month of October to raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse. At Haynes Park, 2006 Grande Blvd., on Thursday, Oct. 24, at 5:30 p.m., a public barbecue event with Mayor Tom Swisstack will take place featuring music, entertainment, and more.
