Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Monday, October 4, 2010

The Centers Against Abuse and Sexual Assault (CAASA) reminds everyone that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Their theme for the year is "Take a Stand Against Domestic Violence".

During this month, CAASA will intensify their efforts to promote public awareness of domestic violence issues.

In 2009, CAASA provided services to 666 new clients - adults and children. Also 69 adults and 67 children sought shelter for a total of 884 nights and 482 crisis calls were answered at their crisis centers.

CAASA is proud to serve the Buena Vista, Cherokee, Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Ida, Palo Alto and Sac counties with individual and group counseling for adults and children, crisis intervention, shelter, information and referral, multicultural outreach, and therapy services.

CAASA is announcing a Candlelight Domestic Violence Vigil scheduled at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10 at the Holstein United Methodist Church 208 South Kiel Street, Holstein. This day will be an opportunity to mourn those that have died, celebrate those who have survived, and connect those who have worked to end domestic violence.

Contact CAASA's 24-hour toll free crisis line at 1-877-362-4612 for more information on how you can help. CAASA is an organization of domestic and sexual violence centers that provides its citizens with a source of information and support for victims of domestic and sexual violence. Please help CAASA to remind everyone to do his or her part by 'Taking a Stand Against Domestic Violence.'

V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, "the very worst abuse." The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong sex. Under Biden's Violence Against Women Act the wrong sex is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence so those options out of a bad relationship, that are routinely available to women, are very often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and often falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, d.v. industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry. Credible research overwhelmingly shows that the ratio of d.v. is at least 50/50 between women & men. http://tinyurl.com/3sakk According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70% of domestic violence incidents, where the domestic violence is not mutual, it's women who initiate the domestic violence. http://tinyurl.com/yzm9xhe The taxpayer funded domestic violence industry has largely mischaracterized the true nature of d.v. from the beginning and continues to mislead the public. D.V. law follows a gender feminist agenda/ideology over facts in evidence and does great harm to many innocent men (and also many battering women who need help) as shown in "Los Misandry" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAmOxvudp...
