October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and as the Governor’s Conference on Domestic Violence kicks off today in the state’s capitol, please take a moment to read this Montgomery Advertiser feature about how the state of Alabama has, and continues, to change its response to domestic violence. 

Each month, AWRN receives letters from women in prison who are there because of an offense related to their attempts to escape their domestic abusers.  The problem is unfortunately alive and well in Alabama.  Please consider donating your time and resources to the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence and their partner shelters throughout the state.
