Every October advocates across Mecklenburg County come together to raise awareness about domestic violence. This month provides an opportunity each year to educate the community on the pattern of abusive behaviors that alter the lives of too many of our neighbors, friends and families. It is a time hold events in memory of those who have lost their lives at the hands of their abusers, and to celebrate all survivors of intimate partner violence.
