Board of commissioners declares October 2021 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The board of commissioners has declared October 2021 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

As a county, we acknowledge that solutions to end domestic violence will only happen with the commitment of our entire community to ensure the safety of victims. Our tireless work with our community-based partners will help create an equitable and violence-free community for all. The board honors the pioneering work of community-based advocates, models that reduce domestic violence and homicides, and culturally relevant approaches and responses.

Commissioner Ortega read the proclamation with county staff offering remarks.
