Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Parade/Bridgewalk

Domestic Violence can touch any of us at any age, regardless of gender or nationality. However Native American Women are victims of Domestic Violence at a rate 3 ½ times greater than any other race, or gender. Until we are willing to truly take a stand against Domestic Violence it will continue to affect our community.

What are you willing to do to stand against Domestic Violence? One of the things our program does is organize our Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Parade/Bridgewalk, Informational Fair and Cookout. The theme for this years’ parade was “Uniting Against Domestic Violence It Starts with Me!” Together we can take a stand against Domestic Violence!

This years Grand Marshal was Jan Wandahsega thank you for your years of working with our program in taking a stand against Violence. A huge THANK YOU to Bink’s Coca Cola, Island Resort and Casino, and Hannahville Police Department!  Bink’s Coca Cola donated all the soda and cups; they have done this for us for the past several years. The Casino donated everything else we needed for our cookout, which includes all the food, condiments, plates, napkins and silverware. Hannahville Police Department for cooking the food and working together to make our Domestic Violence Awareness Event such an important accomplishment! In addition, we would like to thank all of informational fair vendors, without these services many victims would not get the support they need.
