Domestic Violence & Awareness Month

Domestic Violence & Awareness Month

October marks Domestic Violence and Awareness Month (DVAM), a month of activities that celebrate survivors and raises awareness about the issues and the services available to help victims and survivors. The Killingworth Women’s Organization plans on marking the town with purple ribbons in support of DVAM and to increase awareness. You’ll also see signs around town for the month of October to help raise awareness. Killingworth is a wonderful place but we are not immune to domestic violence in our little town.
