October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
The Color is Purple
I am honored to be included with a number of wonderful authors on the website:
I invite you to visit the site for my articles and those of Lundy Bancroft, Melodie Ramone, Catherine Givans, Sherry Rentschler, P.J. LaRue, Vanessa A Ryan, Stephanie Neighbour, and Jenna Brooks (who is site originator, organizer and administrator), with individual site links and comment and contact opportunities. Each lends a valuable perspective to the diverse issues of Domestic Violence.
Throughout the month of October, Jenna will also be featuring Stories In the News, helpful information, and a Survey with results to be collected during the month, and write-in survivor’s stories.
I will be trying to post more often, on both sites. And I encourage you to take in the wealth of insight and information that will be available on all fronts during the month, not only web-based, but in communities. Check your local newspapers for articles, web-browse where services are located in your area and what they do.
There is a HUGE need in churches, who preach compassion, to learn HOW to apply that to DV.
I hear the salutation, “Love in Christ.” And think of the motto, “Be Prepared.”
This month is an easy opportunity to do both.
