Domestic Violence Awareness Forum 11/15/11

Soroptimist International of Calexico hosted a Domestic Violence Awareness Forum on Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 in commemoration of the United Nation’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.  Many women are unaware of the services offered by agencies around the Imperial Valley to combat domestic violence.  This forum was designed to gather agencies who work against domestic violence or who provide assistance to victims of domestic violence in a single location to raise awareness about the resources available in our community.
