Community Gathering: October 2017 Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month

Tuesday, October 3, 2017, at 12:30 p.m. Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, along with local abuse prevention organizations and gun violence awareness activists invites all to gather on the steps of City Hall to recognize October as Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.

This year, Mayor Romeo-Theken, accompanied by other community leaders, will highlight the dangerous intersection of domestic violence and gun violence with a moment of silence to honor victims of the Las Vegas massacre, as well as all victims of natural disasters within Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, The Islands, and Mexico.
We invite all members of the community to join us to help heal while wearing purple – the symbolic color for domestic violence awareness. Wearing purple, shining purple lights in your homes, businesses, and other structures in the community generates discussion and awareness of domestic abuse and dating violence.

For more information, please contact Sunny Robinson (CPDA) – (978) 283-6049.
