ON THE COVER
The purple ribbon on the cover of HER honors the survivors and the victims of domestic violence. It also represents the ongoing fight to end such abuse, which is arguably at epidemic levels in the United States. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. HER is joining in the campaign to raise awareness by taking an in-depth look at the domestic abuse happening in our community, and, even moreso, to encourage those imprisoned by abuse to find the courage to escape.
