In October the staff and friends of Womancare hold an Annual Speakout and Candlelight Vigils in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness. Womancare hosts the annual Speakout in Dover-Foxcroft and candlelight vigils are held in Dexter, Milo, Guilford, and Greenville. Womancare invites the public to attend one or more of these events or to visit their local public libraries to view and read books on domestic violence.
October reminds us to recognize the impact of domestic violence in our community, to remember the victims, celebrate the survivors, and to help ensure a nonviolent future. Please call 564-8165 for more information.
