The statistics related to domestic abuse are staggering. According to the National Network to end Domestic Violence, three women die daily as a result of domestic violence. October is designated as a month to mourn those lost to domestic violence, and to celebrate those who have survived it. In Oakland County women will get a unique opportunity to learn life-saving techniques throughout the month with four separate four-hour long courses trained to prepare women as the month is also dubbed “Women’s Self-Defense Month.” Classes will be hosted in Rochester at the Older Person’s Commission Auditorium on every Saturday in October.
