Folk On The Community
Greetings www.107Jamz.com viewers! It’s your favorite KYNNFOLK making sure you get involved with the people of your community. Your community is what you make it, so get ACTIVE. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month.This week I have some important dates from the Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (LCADV). The Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence is the federally designated statewide coalition of shelters, non-residential programs and individuals working to end domestic violence in Louisiana. Their programs serve people from everywhere in Louisiana and who come from all backgrounds. They oppose violence as a means of control over others and support equality in relationships. For more information about events, advocacy, and volunteering with this great organization visit their website at www.lcadv.org. In the meantime….
