October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I sat down to talk with Doris O’Neal, Director of YWCA’s Domestic Violence Services Program. Together we unpacked and confirmed the issues surrounding domestic violence for black women specifically and what we can do as advocates to ensure black women and girls are heard and seen.
YWCA’s Central Area Food Bank collects approximately 2,500 pounds of food a week and distributes that to over 1,100 people a week. It takes a lot of coordination from donors, volunteers and staff to make sure this process is smooth, safe, and efficient.
