Grass roots movement seeks to end domestic violence locally

Domestic violence. The term often conveys images of a man hovering over a woman with a closed fist, the woman cowering on the floor, crying with hand outstretched as if to stop a coming blow. This isn’t an accurate picture of what it really is. Oftentimes, it isn’t physically violent but rather psychological in nature.

“Domestic violence is about power and control, not about anger,” End Domestic Violence Task Force Leadership Board Member Jennifer Radcliffe-Jones said during a workshop, adding that it does not discriminate.
