District Attorney’s Office to host domestic violence prevention forum
November 9, 2017
SOLANO COUNTY – The Solano County District Attorney's Office and the Family Justice Center will host a Domestic Violence Prevention Forum on Thursday, November 16 at the County Events Center, Room A, 601 Texas Street in Fairfield from 5 – 7 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free informational forum, to learn more about awareness and the prevention of domestic violence. This forum will include a panel of speakers prepared to answer important questions on the topics of domestic violence, including the county prosecution process, law enforcement response, domestic violence advocacy in our community, the effects of domestic violence on children and voices from victims and survivors of domestic violence.
More than four million women a year experience physical assault and rape by their partners in the United States. One in three female homicide victims are murdered by their current or former partner. An estimated 3.3 million children are exposed to violence by family members resulting in deep and lasting emotional effects, whereas they are likely to continue the cycle of abuse from one generation to the next.
Together, let us honor the victims and survivors by promoting peace in our own families, homes and communities as we renew our commitment to end domestic violence in every corner of Solano County.
Please join the District Attorney's Office on Thursday, November 16, in support of those most in need of advocacy and to gain awareness and information about services available in Solano County. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please RSVP by calling the Solano Family Justice Center at (707) 784-7635.
