Retrospective for Forward Momentum on Domestic Violence
Thirty years after the nation awoke to the scope and impact of domestic violence, the United States still grapples with the aftermath of violence by people who usually are intimate partners.
We know the slogans and statistics on domestic violence. But, it is time to take personal responsibility to lend a hand to those who live in the shadows of domestic violence. Be the change that helps someone you know to break the cycle of violence.
In Calvert County, we have taken action to improve the lives of those suffering emotional, physical, financial, and psychological trauma of domestic violence. A partnership between the Calvert County Health Department’s Crisis Intervention Center and the Commission for Women provides advocacy and services to those affected by domestic violence.
Take the first step to end domestic violence in our community. Join the “Community United” Domestic Violence Awareness Vigil and Honorees Ceremony on October 17, 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the College of Southern Maryland, 115 JW Williams Rd. (off Rte. 231), Prince Frederick, MD.
