October 2008 was recently proclaimed Domestic Violence Awareness month by Governor Rick Perry. This month advocates all over the states will be raising awareness about domestic violence.
This October, WPS wants to urge men to become active in the movement to eradicate domestic violence from our community. WPS will host several events throughout the month to educate and inspire those who want to end this epidemic.
The Clothesline Project will give survivors a voice. Survivors of domestic violence have designed t-shirts that express how this issue has impacted our lives. Tornado Gallery will host the event.
WPS will host its annual Candlelight Vigil where we will honor those who have lost their lives to domestic violence, we will pray for those still bound in abuse and will offer hope to those who have escaped.
WPS is also celebrating their 30th anniversary with a cocktail party at Malouf's. The party begins at 6pm and will also include a silent auction with specially designed socks by V.K. Nagrani that honor WPS and also the Texas Council on Family Violence.
