가정폭력 행동의 달

Raise awareness and inspire action this October.

Shine a Light for Survivors this October

매년 10월 YWCA 스포케인은 우리 지역사회에서 만연한 가정폭력에 대한 인식을 높이고, 지속적인 변화를 창출하는 데 초점을 맞춘 행동을 장려하며, 지역사회 전체의 참여를 장려하고자 합니다.

Why this Work is Important

Domestic violence is an urgent issue in our community. Spokane has the highest reported rate of domestic violence in Washington State with 14.2 offenses per 1,000 (2020), compared to the 7.2 state average. In the last 5 years, almost 25% of all violent crime in Spokane is related to domestic violence.

Together, we can respond to this crisis. If we are able to recognize the signs of domestic violence, respond appropriately to help survivors, and refer to meaningful services, we can step into action and help change this statistic.
