OCTOBER – DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which first began in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence to connect advocates across the country.

Last year, Pisgah Legal helped more than 6,400 people escape domestic abuse and rebuild their lives. Legal aid is a vital and potentially life-saving resource for survivors. A study by the Institute for Policy Integrity found that 83% of victims represented by an attorney successfully obtained a protective order, compared to only 32% of victims that did not have an attorney.
 
Please join Pisgah Legal and other advocates to learn about the partnerships that work to keep our community safe.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
