Three per day. That, tragically, is the average number of women in America killed by an intimate partner every year.
It’s a data point that the Redwood City Women’s Club wants to help address at an event it is hosting in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Friday, Oct. 25.
The event, called 3-A-Day, aims to shine sunlight on the causes of domestic violence and solutions that can help prevent deaths and augment care and support for survivors.
Earlier this month, Congresswoman Jackie Speier was announced as the keynote speaker for the event. Other scheduled speakers include Colsaria Henderson, Executive Director of CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse), and Redwood City police Sgt. Diana Villegas and Officer Stephanie Aguilar.
The 3-A-Day event will run from 5:30 – 7:30pm at the Redwood City Women’s Clubhouse, 149 Clinton St, Redwood City. The event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. To pre-register for the event and for more information, click here.
