TAKE ACTION: Tell Your State Representative to Get Serious about Domestic Violence
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and Carolina Peace is asking everyone to send a personal note to their State legislators asking them to take action on domestic violence in the next legislative session.  Write a personal note to your State Rep and include a copy of the following on needed reforms by Sara Barber, Executive Director of the South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
A handwritten note in a snail mail letter is better, but email is also an option.
