And domestic abuse isn't an anger problem, even though it sometimes appears like one. "Instead, it's this deep-ingrained belief that 'I'm entitled to do this to you because I own you,'" NNEDV's Cindy Southworth said.

We appreciate Bevill State Community College for helping us bring awareness to domestic violence. Rep. Connie Rowe spoke to the Jasper campus students about the warning signs of abuse in a relationship and the importance of escaping early. When we arrived to speak to the Sumiton campus students, we were pleasantly surprised to hear that they had prepared their own presentation. It is encouraging to see young adults advocating for domestic violence victims! #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM17
