October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. At Stepping Stones, our mission is to end intimate partner violence in all forms, and we seek to do that through EMPOWERMENT. You don’t have to live in fear, chaos, and abuse. You don’t have to live life as a victim. You can say NO MORE and begin taking steps toward a life free from all forms of victimization. Stepping Stones is here to help if you need safe shelter, advocacy, or just someone to listen. Our advocates are available day and night – 928.445.HOPE (4673).
Want to get involved all month long? Join Stepping Stones this month at several events to say no more to violence, honor survivors, and remember those who have lost their lives.
October 4 – Take Back the Night
The Coordinated Community Response Team is hosting Take Back the Night, an opportunity to hear from survivors and remember victims who lost their lives. The event includes resource tables, special speakers from the community, and a short march. Advocates will be available at the event.
