October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time when communities across the state and country focus on raising visibility and creating change. Domestic violence thrives when communities are silent, so this month is about ending that silence and encouraging everyone to take a stand.
In Hawai‘i, there are many local activities talking place to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We invite you to read about some of them and check out even more from Hawai‘i Says NO MORE.
Dear Joyful Heart Community,
We are deeply saddened by the shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina that took place on Wednesday night, and want to express our deepest condolences to the families, Black community and community at large affected by this violence.
