More than one in three women and more than one in four men in the U.S. report having experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Domestic violence is rarely reported to police and only a third of people who are injured during a domestic violence incident will ever receive medical care for their injuries
As Domestic Violence Awareness month got underway last week, the Noah Project held a Candlelight Vigil at the Taylor County Courthouse to honor domestic violence victims. The organization has a series of events planned to continue throughout the month of October.
