Women's Community hosts event to raise awareness for domestic abuse
WAUSAU (WAOW) -- October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. Wausau's Women's Community hosted an event Saturday to raise awareness locally.
This is the eleventh year the Women's Community has hosted this event.
The center invited women, men and children to come out for a day of fun and education.
"We need a community to end this issue. All of us need to work together," says Jane Graham Jennings, the Wausau Women's Community executive director. "When we see the people coming out and saying we want to support the Women's Community, it really means the world to the people who need us."
The Women's Community encourages any victims of domestic abuse to call their office or 24-hour hotline.
