CADA hosts Night of Remembrance and Empowerment
MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
And to start off Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the nonprofit CADA is asking community members to join them in a Night of Remembrance and Empowerment.
In Mankato, CADA provides safety and support to victims of domestic and sexual violence through education, advocacy, and shelter.
A night to honor those whose lives have been taken and celebrate those who have survived.
They say this month is a time to acknowledge domestic violence survivors and be a voice for its victims.
“One in four people experiences domestic violence. So, statistically, we all know somebody, and so the more the public can recognize red flags, the more we can intervene, the more people understand the reality of these situations, the more people can take everyday action,” explained Kristen Walters, development and communications manager at CADA.
The Night of Remembrance and Empowerment Event will be hosted at Minnesota Square Park in St. Peter from 6-8 p.m. Thursday.
