“Domestic violence is a serious issue that is harmful not only to individuals and families, but to our entire community,” Mayor Barney said in a press release. “I hope to bring visibility to an issue that has an untold number of victims by declaring the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is imperative that victims know that they are not alone and that support is available.
