Local 1000 Stands Against Domestic Violence
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
The physical and emotional scars of domestic violence can cast a long shadow. Too many individuals face the pain and fear of domestic violence, victims who often suffer in silence and without support.
The Local 1000 Women’s Committee stands with those who have endured the often-tragic consequences of domestic violence and works to help prevent future incidents.
It is in this spirit that Local 1000 recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month with its efforts to educate and provide solutions to victims.
“Our mission is to help our Union sisters, and all Californians, to break the cycle of domestic violence,” said Carey Wilson, President of the Local 1000 Women’s Committee.
Domestic Violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44, more than car accidents, muggings and rapes combined. One in three women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime—as many as four million each year.
“Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence,” said Wilson.
