OCTOBER 2012

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MONTH!

        Here are some very startling statistics: 1.) Every 9 seconds a woman in the United States is being assaulted or beaten. 2.) Daily, more than 3 women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. 3.) Close to 1 in 5 teenage girls have been in a relationship in which they were threatened with violence from their boyfriends if they terminated their relationships.

      Yearly, Casa Zia Productions encourages our families, friends, communities and civic organizations to get involved in the fight to help end domestic violence. Violence in the home has not only attributed to the loss of trust and personal safety in a loving and nurturing environment but, also to the hopes, dreams and aspirations of many women and children. Multiple  lives are lost, both physically and emotionally that could have been prevented. This month, please contact your local domestic violence shelter or safe house and volunteer your time and compassion to assisting those in need. You may also contact the National Domestic Violence hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE {7233}or TTY 1-800-787-3224. You may not only help to save lives but you may be able to help break this cycle and give someone a new chance at discovering their self worth and wealth. You may rescue the next civic leader, scientist, physician, educator or writer!
