DV Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence (DV) Awareness month and Kauai CC's Preventing Violence Against Women (PVAW) Task Force has been working with the YWCA of Kaua'i and the County's DV Task Force on several activities listed on the attached flyer.

Coming up this Saturday, Oct 8, 1-3:00 p.m. is the Self Defense Seminar at the Convention Hall. It is open for both men and women. Contact Lianne, Office of the Prosecuting Attorney, 241-1745.

As educators, parents, neighbors, and friends we are the agents of social change in our community. Help to end the violence occuring on our island and in our community. According to recent KPD stats shared at a DV Task Force Meeting, family abuse calls are going up each month since July.

We would welcome instructors coming up with DV Awareness projects for students to earn extra credit on such as: poems, art work, music, essays, film critique, videos, posters, etc. Please help to build a stronger community by supporting the work that helps others to live a decent life.

Thank you,
Frances Dinnan
Counselor, ext 381
