October – Child Abuse Awareness Month

“The Faces of Domestic Violence” and “The Clothesline Project” are on display for the month of October at the Franklin Public Library. These displays of art are designed and created by participants of community groups sponsored by PPC as a means of expressing their feelings and experiences with domestic violence.

Help the community, raise awareness to stop violence and abuse.
