An organization dedicated to stopping domestic violence held its most important event Tuesday morning.
The Celebration of Hope is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Alternatives for Battered Women and this year the organization is highlighting domestic violence in the workplace. Guests at the event listened to stories of hope from women who were able to overcome adversity.
Cassandra George Ramos said, “The theme for today is workplace violence and it's not necessarily something we think of and workplace violence can come in a lot of different ways a lot of different shapes and sizes. It can be someone actually in the workplace who is threatening another employee or it can be the impact of a domestic situation in the workplace."
Speakers at the event included Senator Joe Robach and Verizon Regional District President Chris Felix.
