October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To educate our community about this serious issue, our office distributes a booklet including events, workshops, cultural activities, classes or lectures that pertain to women and families, with a special focus on domestic violence issues.

The booklet primarily focuses on events held throughout October, but also lists events through December. Events scheduled for 2017 are included as “Save the Dates.”

The booklet is distributed in September to county residents, women’s organizations, libraries and other points of contact, and is included on relevant county websites. Programs/events scheduled prior to Oct. 1 are posted on the Office for Women’s Web site, but do not appear in the calendar booklet.

For more information, to be added to our mailing list or to request a copy of the booklet, contact the Office for Women.
