Letters to the Editor
October is nationwide Domestic Violence Action Month (DVAM). The original purpose of DVAM was to connect domestic violence advocates around the country and region, but as the month has gained more attention, it has expanded to involve everyone interested in learning about domestic violence, reporting instances and breaking the cycle of violence.
