MILWAUKEE — City leaders showed support for victims of domestic violence on Thursday, Oct. 18 during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
“More than one in three women have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. The first time I heard that figure, I was shocked,” said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Officials made purple ribbons available for free in the City Hall Rotunda to show support for victims.
