"One out of four women will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime, making it an issue we desperately need to talk about and work to end." - Judy Kahan, CEO, Center Against DV
(PRWEB) October 01, 2014
October is domestic violence awareness month. Our October Breakfast, Transforming Lives Through the Arts, will address domestic violence and how the Center and others utilize the arts to help survivors heal.
The Center includes dance and visual arts to fulfill our mission of ending domestic violence in our communities. Art helps domestic violence survivors safely express the difficult and often terrifying feelings that accompany abuse. Participating in artistic expression helps survivors cope with traumatic memories, supports emotional stability, strengthens their sense of safety, and promotes joy.
