Why are there T-shirts hanging in the library and why is there an Art Above Violence Art Show happening on October 27?

In cooperation with the New Directions Center, Inc., and the Virginia Attorney General's office, the Augusta County Sheriff's Office and the Staunton and Waynesboro Police Departments will begin using the Lethality Assessment Protocol (LAP) to help determine if a domestic violence victim meets criteria that would suggest that their personal safety is at high risk.

"One in four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, and, on average, three women are killed every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner", stated Hernandez.

On average, nearly 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner per minute in the U.S. "Many women and men involved in domestic abuse have to leave their home on a moment's notice and don't have time to take these items with them".

Chelsea's Antonio Conte feeling more settled in London with family with him
After two years on loan and a good experience with Borussia Monchengladbach, he is here and ready to play with Chelsea. Usually we play with two, [so] this season could be good for him to show he deserves to play.

Do these facts frighten you or make you feel a little uneasy?

According to Butterfly Blaise, Title IX coordinator at SUNY Plattsburgh, artists will paint on canvases and share spoken word, poetry and music in relation to domestic violence awareness, solidarity and prevention.

They also paid tribute to all of those that have lost their lives this year in ME as a result of domestic violence. They also operate the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at www.thehotline.org, or by calling 1-800-799-7233 or 800-787-3224 (TTY). If you or someone you know is looking for help on campus, Campus Health and Wellness Services (CHWS) has several resources available to students. The goal of Domestic Violence Awareness Month is to educate the public to speak out against domestic violence because the issue will continue until society stands up against abusive behavior. It expanded to a week of remembrance and advocacy until 1987, when the first Domestic Violence Action Month, as it is called today, was observed.

Rise Above Violence is our community's local domestic violence and sexual assault organization. These services started in 1981 with a 24 hour crisis hotline and has expanded over the years to include two emergency shelters and outreach in six counties from offices in Morristown and Tazewell.
