Throughout October, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s Gamma Mu Omega Chapter recognized National Domestic Violence Awareness Month with activities planned by the chapter’s Social Justice and Human Rights Committee.
Coordinated by Patricia James, the chapter’s Social Justice and Human Rights Committee chairman, the chapter made a donation to the Domestic Abuse Council of Volusia County, Inc. The donation included supplies needed for victims staying at the Domestic Abuse Council emergency shelter, including hair care products and other toiletries.
In addition, on Oct. 26, chapter members marched in the Bethune-Cookman University homecoming parade wearing specially made purple T-shirts, the color used to commemorate National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
While marching in the parade, chapter members distributed information on domestic abuse awareness and emergency contact information, as well as information on breast cancer awareness and human trafficking.
