Be a link in the human chain against domestic violence!
Join AshaKiran and other organizations across Alabama as they host their annual State-Wide Human Chain Against Domestic Violence on Sunday October 22nd 2017 from 2pm to 3 pm!

In recognition of October’s National Domestic Violence Awareness month, AshaKiran, the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ACADV), local citizens, social groups and non-profits present will link hands to form a human chain and together make the pledge to take a stand against domestic violence. Abusers keep their power with silence and secrecy - by placing a spotlight on domestic violence brings DV out of the dark and helps to end that cycle.

AshaKiran invites the community to join the diverse organizations from throughout the city that have gathered to support and make a stand against domestic violence at their individual human chain taking place at the Kids Pavillion in Dublin Memorial Park in Madison, AL! This is a free event which include 2017 speakers DV survivor, Author and 2015 Ms. Madison County Plus America Ms. Kerri Davis - Model Author and HSV Police Deputy Chief Kirk Giles!

"When we respect each other we may minimize the violence we're doing and definitely events like this, any event, I think it makes us think, and become cognizant of what someone is going through,” said AshaKiran Founder and President Bhavani Kakani. “People may hear and learn about the violence and learn that they can get help - by helping just one person, they can start to break the cycle of domestic violence," Kakani continued.

Additionally, the Coordinated Community Task Force (CCR) against Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault serving Jackson, Limestone, Madison and Morgan Counties have organized a month of events during October encouraging the public to attend, wear purple, or purple ribbons to help place a focus on domestic violence awareness.

Human Chain Event 2017 participating organizations include: Crisis Services of North Alabama, Stop Trafficking Now: Huntsville/Madison County Human Trafficking Task Force, Madison County Coordinated Community Task Force (CCR): Task Force Against Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault, Free 2 Be, Victim Services of Cullman, Kelley's Rainbow, 2nd Chance, Penelope House and The Lighthouse.
