October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Let's use October as a time to rally together to bring awareness to domestic violence and support survivors in our community. In collaboration with community partners, Alternatives to Violence has some interactive events planned for October to make it easy to help. Please call us at 970-669-5150 with any questions.

PAWS & REFLECT: Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.

The community is invited to parade their pets in purple (the color symbolizing domestic violence) or in costume while raising awareness for domestic violence. We'll start by the Foote Lagoon Amphitheater and make our way around the Lagoon. We'll finish in the plaza area where participants can enjoy activities from local businesses. Pets are a big reason why domestic violence victims do not initially leave an abusive partner. Many shelters may not take pets, so victims are hesitant to leave pets behind out of fear that they will be abused.
