In Wichita, there’s a family crisis center that’s doing the community a huge favor. The Wichita Family Crisis Center is organizing a whole month jam-packed with events in order to raise awareness. These events coincide with an effort to raise money against domestic violence.
Domestic Violence Is No Joke
Some members are very proactive in this case. For instance, Amy Cox is the development director at WFCC. While promoting the events, she said, “Domestic violence grows when people are silent about it, so it’s really important to prevent domestic violence by talking about it. When we talk about it, it empowers others to talk about their experiences.”
The funding will help the center continue to provide its 24/7 helpline and emergency shelter. It will also help provide free legal support and increase awareness of support groups.
This is all to raise money for victims who desperately need it. The theme is #Every1KnowsSome1, which highlights how one in every three women and one in every seven men experience domestic violence throughout their lifetimes.
Here are some events that will occur during the month, starting on October 6th and ending on October 17th.
The WFCC Domestic Violence Awareness Walk occurs from noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, October 15th in Island Park, at 200 Main Street, in Winfield.
Also, you have to check out the Purple Mile Awareness Walk, where from the hours of 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 9th, students can walk in honor of victims.
If you go to 200 North Broadway, Suite 110, you can write messages of hope for survivors.
Next Thursday afternoon, on the 14th of October, allows you to learn more about this in the USA. The Zoom Presentation itself is run by the staff of the WFCC’s Cowley and Wichita offices.
Wichita Car Transport happily supports this important event. Domestic violence awareness is incredibly important, as so many people experience it. In order to live in a world that we can be proud of, we need to keep talking about this difficult topic.
