October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Turning Point is putting on a number of events aimed at educating the community about domestic violence issues. Stephen Dischinger says that one such event, “Men Take a Stand,” takes place next week.

Dischinger says that a group will gather prior to the event.

Dischinger says this event is important in helping the community understand that men are a vital component in ending the cycle of domestic violence and nurturing healthy relationships. If you can’t take part in the march, you are welcome to go straight to city hall for the noon event.
