Since 1996, nearly 200 individuals have been murdered and many more have died, through perpetrators committing suicide or being killed by another, due to domestic violence in Alameda County.
Our Empowerment Director, Jane Whitney read names at Alameda County’s Day of Remembrance to honor victims of domestic violence.
