Domestic Violence Awareness Month (PLV)

News Story

Pace FIRE is raising awareness about domestic violence with events that focus on healing, support, and education. Let’s break the silence together.

In addition to the events below, Pace FIRE (Fighting Ignorance and Rape through Education) will be accepting donations for local domestic violence shelters all throughout October 2018. They’re looking for items such as (but not limited to) gift cards, large duffel bags, bedding, towels, pajamas, business clothes, Spanish early reader children’s books, unopened full-size toiletries for men and women, tampons and pads, and school supplies. Be sure to stop by one of their donation box locations in Elm Hall and the Kessel Student Center.
