HOPE Partners With Good Liquid Brewing Co. To Promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month
HOPE Family Services (HOPE) in partnership with Good Liquid Brewing will host “Hops for HOPE” in an effort to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The event will take place at Good Liquid Brewing on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, from 5 pm - 9 pm. The night will include specialty craft beer, music, food, and more!
During “Hops for HOPE”, Good Liquid Brewing will offer an exclusive purple beer to support Domestic Violence Awareness Month. $1 from each pint sold will be donated to HOPE Family Services. Proceeds will support the life-changing services HOPE offers to those affected by domestic violence. The community is encouraged to show their support for victims and survivors during Domestic Violence Awareness Month by attending this event.
“Events with community partners, like Good Liquid Brewing, are fun ways to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence and spread awareness of the services HOPE offers to our community,” said Laurel Lynch, CEO of HOPE Family Services. “Having community support is essential and allows us to continue to provide all of our services free of charge.”
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), which first began in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to connect battered women’s advocates across the country.
DVAM statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
- On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
- 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner violence.
- 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.
- 72% of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner.
