SOFIA to Hold its 4th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence – “From Surviving to Thriving”

BY  |  Tuesday, Jul 22, 2014 10:30am  |  COMMENTS (0)

SOFIA 4th WalkEvery nine seconds, a woman in the USA is assaulted or beaten, and the vast majority of these abuses are between intimate partners. Every month in the USA, at least 46 women are shot to death by their former or current intimate partners. In New Jersey, on average, there are 70,000 domestic violence calls every year. Those who work in law enforcement and victims’ services know that many abuses go unreported. The numbers are staggering, shocking, disheartening, and all too real.

In our area, Montclair’s own Start Out Fresh Intervention Advocates (SOFIA) helps victims of domestic violence to move on, and the organization also educates young people about how they can avoid the cycle of violence altogether. Check out the various programs SOFIA offers here.

This September, SOFIA will hold its Fourth Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence in beautiful Canterbury Park. Last year’s walk was a resounding success, with a big crowd of survivors and supporters as well as several eloquent speakers. This year the Grand Marshal is the Reverend Simone Oliver, one of the presenters at last year’s event. Continue Reading

Holsten's is a favorite of my 3-year-old daughter. She asks for it whenever we say "Where do you want to go for dinner?" And she prefers their homemade candy to their ice cream. I think she especially loves the family memories we've made there since she was a baby... and the stuffed animals don't hurt. Congratulations to our friends at Holsten's on 75 years!
