The public is invited to join in the Walk & Roll Against Domestic Violence tomorrow, Oct. 17, 2018 in Upper MIHA.
Registration will start at 5pm at the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp.’s parking lot with the walk starting at 5:30pm. The first 100 individuals to register will also receive a free T-shirt.
The Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence, with the Family Violence Task Force, also encourage Walk & Roll participants to create signs or banners to help spread awareness of domestic violence and/or to show support for victims and survivors.
October is nationally and locally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, with this year’s theme for the CNMI being “Support. Encourage. Empower.”
