2nd Annual Day Without Violence, Enid, Oklahoma (April 16th)

This Saturday, April 16, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. is the 2nd Annual Day Without Violence event sponsored by the Garfield County Domestic Violence Task Force.

It will be held in conjunction with the Smokin Red Dirt BBQ cookoff in Downtown Enid, near the intersection of Independence and Maine streets.  The goal is to increase awareness of what constitutes domestic violence and what services are available for victims.

Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma will be there, along with about 20 other agencies, including the Garfield County Sheriff, Enid Police Department, Garfield County District Attorney's office, Enid YWCA, Enid Public Schools,  OK DHS, OK Department of Corrections, Vance Air Force Base, Enid United Way and many others.

Agencies will have all kinds of fun activities for the whole family, including 'hands-on' activities for the kids!  We’ll have prizes, free sno-cones and inflatables.  Stop by the Legal Aid area for information about domestic violence and what you can do, trinkets and draw a picture on the topic "a Day Without Violence." 
Speaking of Domestic Violence, no one has the right to harm you physically or emotionally, hit you, choke you, stalk you, harass you... none of this is acceptable behavior, in fact, it might be a crime!

If you find yourself in this position, you are NOT alone!  There is help available.
In Oklahoma, here is a list of all of the domestic violence shelters where you can get help:

If this sounds like you or some you know, you might need a Victim's Protective Order.
