Contact: Sandy Thompson, Counselor
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bismarck, N.D. -- United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) welcomes the community to join us in honoring October 2018 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) domestic violence is a public health problem that affects millions of Americans.
#1Thing is a campaign, launched by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, rooted in the belief that one action, one voice, or one thing, can be a catalyst for change when dealing with domestic violence.
UTTC is committed to spreading awareness and providing support for anyone who has been affected by domestic violence.
Throughout the month of October, UTTC invites the community to take part in spreading awareness of the continuing problem of domestic violence in our own communities.
UTTC is hosting two events in October to raise awareness and provide resources to those who have come in contact with domestic violence.
The Be a Good Relative event will take place Oct. 4, 2018, 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. in the Wellness Center Conference Room on UTTC's campus.
Participants will discuss how to identify potentially violent situations, helpful resources, and learn how to lessen incidents of violence in the community.
On October 11, 2018, 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., in the UTTC Wellness Center Healing Room, UTTC will host the second annual National Domestic Violence Awareness event on campus.
Join the UTTC community to hear stories of survivors of abusive relationships and receive important information on how you can do #1Thing to eliminate domestic violence.
