October brings awareness to domestic violence Domestic violence is the intentional abusive, violent, coercive, forceful or threatening word or action perpetrated by one member of a family or household onto another, commonly in an intimate partner relationship. Every day, three women are killed because of domestic violence in America, says the Bureau of Justice Statistics. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, domestic violence results in more than 18.5 million health care visits yearly. Eighty-five percent of domestic violence victims are women, and one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Domestic violence affects women, men and children in our family, in our workplace and in our community. October is designated as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Communities, such as Chandler, promote awareness as a means to end violence, and the City certainly is committed to support these efforts. Katie Cain, the City’s Victim Services Coordinator, is part of the Chandler Police Department and is responsible for overseeing this initiative. Each year, Cain helps to coordinate the City’s Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Event, hosted by the

Domestic Violence Commission. This year marked the sixth annual event that brings local agency representatives, community partners and citizens together to raise awareness about the prevalence of domestic violence in our communities and learn about the resources available. The keynote speaker is generally an inspirational community member whose life has been impacted by domestic violence. Also, each year on Oct. 15, City of Chandler employees are asked to wear purple to demonstrate their support for domestic violence victims, survivors and the programs that serve them. Everyone is encouraged to wear a purple shirt, a purple tie, purple shoes or even just a purple ribbon. It is an important time to reflect and renew the commitment to end domestic violence in Arizona. The statistics are alarming. In Arizona, every 5 minutes, a law enforcement officer responds to a domestic violence call; every 39 minutes on or more children witness a domestic violence incident. Another unfortunate fact is that so many of us know someone who is affected by domestic violence. This month is a time to remember those who lost their lives, celebrate those who survive
