What we have been up to…

Training: How Cyber Stalking Impacts Domestic Violence

Betsy Ramsey provided a training in cyber stalking and its effects on domestic violence to the community. The training was hosted by SAFE and North Enotah Domestic Violence Task Force. Several local law enforcement officers attended as well as other agencies that serve victims of abuse. Ms. Betsy’s was extremely informative and provided stories from her experiences as they related. We are proud at SAFE to have her. 

Remember My Name Ceremony

On October 6th members of the community came together in remembrance and honor of victims of domestic violence homicide during 2017. Nottely Marina hosted the event. If you drive by after dusk you can see the bags lit up on the lawn, each one in remembrance of the 97 unnecessary deaths that occurred. Those who attended lit a candle in each bag and then listened to the Remember My Name poem, in honor of Andrew Cato and Tamma Lee. Thank you to those who came and paid tribute to those souls who will be greatly missed.
