If you’ve walked through the Union Building at WSU during the last few weeks, you’ve probably seen the many displays related to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Perhaps the most unsettling displays are those painted silhouettes of men and women which are accompanied with real-life stories of domestic violence victims. Reading these stories can be gut-wrenching, but we all need to be reminded that there are people among us who are suffering from physical abuse. This awareness can lead individuals to better recognize the signs of domestic violence and provide help to those who are suffering.
Peery’s Egyptian Theater and Club 366 will both be hosting events tonight to support Your Community Connection, which provides help for battered women and children. Come out and show your support; you never know when your help might pull someone out of an abusive relationship. For more information about YCC, please visit their website at http://www.yccogden.org/
