Help June N. Jenkins make domestic violence unfashionable Oct 11-15
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and June N Jenkins Women's Shelter is making domestic violence unfashionable.
"This is our month to really shine a light on domestic abuse and get people involved in helping us put an end to it!" the Shelter posted.
The Little Black Dress Campaign begins Oct 11- Oct 15.
"Little Black Dress Campaign" is a domestic violence awareness campaign designed to make domestic violence unfashionable.
Participants raise awareness around the limits domestic violence can play on your resources, your opinions, your opportunities for employment and the work that June N. Jenkins Women's Shelter is doing to end the cycle of domestic violence by wearing the same black dress for five consecutive working days.
During this week we ask that community partners, friends, family, wear the same black dress to work, play, etc. to bring awareness and prevention to symbolize some of the struggles victims and family members in this situation may have, not only in DeRidder, but our state and our Country.
A proclamation will be signed at 10 am Oct. 5 on the courthouse steps as well.
"If you are interested in joining us please give contact the Women's Shelter or message them your address and number of pins wanted." said the Shelter.
"We can make a difference!!" stated June N. Jenkins.
