Butte College Football Team Honors Domestic Violence Awareness Month Saturday, October 22
The Butte College Safe Place & Wellness Program along with Catalyst Domestic Violence Services will be “Taking a Stand” and staffing a booth to raise awareness for national Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Saturday, October 22, 1 p.m., at the home Butte College Football game, 3536 Butte Campus Drive, Oroville against the College of the Siskiyous.
All BC football players will stand against domestic violence and in solidarity of victims and survivors. The players will be placing purple ribbons on their football helmets and will stand during half time or first kick off. The announcer will ask the crowd to stand with the players as they standup against domestic violence.
“Taking A Stand” is a call to action meant to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence for Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) and throughout the year. By taking a stand we intend to remind the nation that there are still countless people--victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities--impacted by domestic violence.
Admission is $10 for adults, and Butte College students have free admission with a student ID.
