October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Did you know that domestic violence is the most common to occur to women age 18-24? Domestic violence can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race, etc. The Women’s Center will be recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. We have planned a month filled with peer facilitated learning opportunities, educational workshops, activism through art, lunch-and-learns, and a film screening and workshop for Escalation.  On October 18, join us for our keynote address by Dr. Lorraine D. Acker, Director of the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center at Iowa State University at 6:00 p.m. in the Talley Student Union Ballroom. We hope that you will be able to join us for this informative month of events.
