One Mile Closer to Hope | Domestic Violence Awareness Month Walk
October 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
DENVER – Thursday, October 19th – On Thursday, October 19 our community will come together in support of survivors of intimate partner violence and in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Starting at the Rose Andom Center, everyone is invited to join survivors, advocates, and community leaders as they march to the Capitol to bring awareness to the impact that intimate partner violence (often called domestic violence) has and to elevate the voices of survivors. This walk aims to show that each time our community listens to a survivor, tries to fully understand the impacts, and takes steps to support them, we are one mile closer to a future without domestic violence.
Survivors are all around you. Anyone who identifies as a survivor, knows a survivor, or wants to show survivors in our community that they support them, is invited to join starting at the Rose Andom Center and walking to the Capitol West Steps. Remarks will feature:
Margaret Abrahms – Rose Andom Center, Executive Director
Dr. Anjunradha Paranjape – Denver Health – Director of Service, Department of Medicine
Roshan Kalantar – Violence Free Colorado – Executive Director
Pam Scriven – VOICES Member
Please join us as we walk one mile closer to hope.
