CARA Displays T-shirts to Bring Awareness to Domestic Violence

COURT HOUSE - In observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Coalition Against Rape and Abuse (CARA) has set up a display on the second floor of Atlantic Cape Community College to bring attention to this very serious issue.

The display includes t-shirts featuring art created by clients of CARA and their children, as well as a table with brochures explaining domestic violence, what people should be aware of, and how victims of domestic abuse can get help and support.

A mannequin, whom CARA has named “Sarah,” stands by the table, her arm in a sling, her wrist and eye bandaged, her shirt bearing phrases of verbal abuse. “Sarah” represents the victims of domestic violence but also the importance of becoming knowledgeable about the issue.
