On the last night of each year, I sit quietly for a moment and imagine…
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States. As we enter this month, my hope is as it has been for the more than twenty years of my activism efforts: That every survivor of this violence is given both the opportunity and grace to reclaim themselves and then remake themselves in the aftermath of the violence, and that they be wholly supported and assisted while they do.
To learn more about the events being coordinated across the country and how to get involved this month, please see The National Network to End Domestic Violence action page.
If you are in need of support, please refer to the listing of International Resources for Survivors of both Sexual and Domestic Violence
here on my website. This is an extensive listing of resources, once again recently updated to include more resources, which provide emotional, legal and medical assistance and support, as well as shelter services. Thank you.
And all peace to each one of you, especially those of you in need of shelter and healing. Dora
