Honor the Stories and Reflections of survivors who have experienced domestic violence @ Sudbury Police Department Meeting Room

To commemorate National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Sudbury Wayland Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable will gather to Honor the Stories and Reflections of survivors who have experienced domestic violence in their intimate relationships. There will be a panel presentation by survivors from our local communities and the advocates from The Second Step who support them. Let’s all join together to stand witness to these powerful stories of healing and resilience as presented by members of our greater community.

This program will take place on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, from 3-4:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the Sudbury Police Department located at 75 Hudson Road in Sudbury.

National Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an annual designation observed in October by communities throughout the United States. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner every year.

Domestic Violence is an epidemic in our society, and our communities are not immune. So far this year, there have been 13 domestic violence homicides in Massachusetts, including 10 adults and three children.

Domestic Violence is not just about physical assault. It is a complicated, insidious issue, defined as a pattern of power and control that one partner uses over another in an intimate relationship. It is relentless and traumatic.  And it affects people of all genders, socio-economic backgrounds, levels of education, ages, races, nationalities, professions…everyone.

The Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting safe and healthy relationships, and raising public awareness about abusive and controlling behaviors. We pursue these goals by educating our communities, supporting agencies that provide services to victims of abuse, and mobilizing community leaders. New members are always welcome.
