Alternatives To Living In Violent Environments

 

 

ALIVE honors Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Did you know?  Over 1 million women are victims of domestic violence each year....and 1 in every 4 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime.

 

 

 

ALIVE in collaboration with East Central College participated in their free forum on October 2nd to provide education and awareness on domestic violence.   The October 2nd event was the first in a series of free forums hosted by Dr. Bill Cunningham and the psychology and sociology departments.  "Domestic violence is not an isolated, individual event, but rather a pattern of repeated behaviors," Cunningham stated.  "We want to connect our residents with the experts in the field who can offer support and provide some direction as they struggle with this issue."  ALIVE is that resource serving domestic abuse victims.  Speakers from ALIVE included:  Maggie Menefee, Betty Crawford, Ashley Rawie, and Roselyne Hazard.  Also presenting was Sheryl LeJeune from the Batterer's Intervention Program.  This forum was attended by over 65 students and residents from the community.

 

ALIVE also participated in the ANNUAL  Candlelight Vigil hosted at the Historic Franklin County Courthouse on October 15th in Union.  Speakers for the event included Franklin County Prosecutor Robert Parks, Maggie Menefee, Cathy Covington, Sheryl LeJeune and a survivor of domestic abuse.  ALIVE also honored and thanked local law enforcement for their support and response to domestic abuse victims.
