October is Domestic Violence awareness month. It's the time to acknowledge survivors and provide resources to victims. It's a busy month for the domestic violence resource center, but they work year-round to offer victims ways out of dangerous domestic situations.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced physical domestic violence. Kristen Middleton is the executive director of the Domestic Violence Resource Center in New Mexico.
