End domestic violence

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Monday, October 28, 2002

While it is commendable that 350 people marched in Juneau for peace, how many people marched this month to end domestic violence? Until we have peace in our homes and families, how can we ever hope to achieve world peace ?

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Alaska. During the 2001 fiscal year in Alaska, over 6,500 Alaskans were affected by domestic violence. Peace begins at home.
