"Take Back the Night": Need in ND Growing

Posted: Updated:

People rally to "Take Back the Night" at the North Dakota Capitol.  They hope to raise awareness and unify men and women to take a stand so the night is safe for everyone. 

Even as the rally celebrates survivors, three red silhouettes are a stark reminder of those murdered this past year in North Dakota.  The Abused Adult Resource Center says tonight, the shelters are full, and the need for domestic violence awareness in our communities is great.

"Numbers are going up.  I think we're seeing younger and younger women coming in and asking for help.  I think this community has no idea what the violence is behind closed doors," says Diane Zainhofsky, Executive Director, Abused Adult Resource Center.

The Abused Adult Resource Center advises women don't have to stay in an abusive relationship.  They encourage people to reach out to them for options by phoning their Crisis Line at 866-341-7009.
