(October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month)…Womanhaven/Center for Family Solutions uses the month to educate the public on Domestic Violence.
The month is punctuated every year with a March against Domestic Violence. This year, the 12th Annual March will be held Wednesday, October 21, at 5:15 pm. The March is to remember victims, celebrate survivors and take a stand as a community to end the violence. The March Against Domestic Violence begins at the steps of the Imperial County Courthouse and ends at the Town Square at 7th and Main Streets in El Centro. At the Town Square there will be free hot dogs, T-Shirt giveaways, Resource Tables, the CUHS Marching Band and free popcorn. Anyone wishing to set up a resource table should contact Womanhaven. The public is encouraged to wear purple shirts to show support for the cause.
