Thanks for Raising Awareness About Domestic & Sexual Violence!

AwarenessDay2013

April 15th was Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking Awareness Day at the State Capitol. Thank you to all of the advocates and survivors who spent the day at the Capitol and did such a great job of spreading the word about the need for services, and to the legislators who showed your support for survivors!
