October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and in the spirit of providing resources and education, Carroll groups who work with survivors will be gathered at a Domestic Violence Education & Prevention Forum.

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Westminster will partner with the Rape Crisis Intervention Service of Carroll County to host the forum.

“It’s for the whole community,” said Mary Dudderar, an organizer of the event. “The idea is to make resources available there at the event.”

The evening will begin with keynote speaker Terry Smack, a domestic violence survivor and the founder of Westminster-based Terry’s Tag & Title. This will be followed by a forum made up of representatives from different local organizations giving an overview of their work and answering audience questions.
