THE KILLOUGH LEGACY
Domestic Violence Awareness
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Prevention - Empowerment - Resilience
Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the Day of Unity conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in October 1981. The goal was to connect advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became an entire week devoted to a range of activities conducted at the local, state, and national levels. The activities conducted were as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but had common themes: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived, and connecting those who work to end violence.In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed, and the first national domestic violence toll-free hotline was established. In 1989, Congress passed Public Law 101-112 designating October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Such legislation has passed every year since.
The Killough Legacy will be host our !st Annual "Flames of a Phoenix" event. A fundraiser to benefit domestic violence awareness and prevention. The Flames of Phoenix Event will be a night to remember. We will honor domestic violence survivors and the very special people that work tirelessly to create safe pathways for a new beginning. This is more than a fundraiser , but is an opportunity for community engagement and networking with positive people that desire to make an impact.
