October has been Domestic Violence Awareness Month for a couple of decades now and still some folks don’t get it. You might see a purple ribbon. Maybe some businesses and communities string some purple lights in their windows, but what are we doing this year to increase awareness and honor the lives torn apart by this particularly insidious form of violence against women?
There is a National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and we’re lucky to have its new Executive Director, Ruth Glenn join us to talk about what different groups around the country are doing to raise awareness about DV. She worked for the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years. Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for over 19 years and holds a Masters’ in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Colorado Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a degree in Communications.
She has served on many domestic violence program and funding boards, provided hundreds of presentations on domestic violence victimization and survival, testified before the Colorado State legislature, appeared on local and national television, and provided consultation, training and technical assistance on a local and national level on victim/survivor issues as they relate to domestic violence.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to as we discuss what we are doing to improve understanding of intimate partner violence.
