Sheila Combs, Outreach Counselor for Refuge House, Inc., invites the public to attend an event at the Madison County Courthouse, Friday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m.
Refuge House/Madison Outreach is committed to ending the conditions in society that foster domestic violence, and Friday’s event on the courthouse lawn will help kick off October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The event will include a proclamation for the month of October as well as several speakers who have survived domestic violence. They will be celebrating their survival and taking a stand against abuse of women everywhere as they ask for the public’s support in their continuing efforts to educate people and promote awareness. In doing so, they hope to eventually put an end to it, in a world that will one day be safe for all women.
