Central Coast Voices: Standing strong against domestic violence

Broadcast date: 12/21/2017

Domestic violence happens everywhere, including right here on the Central Coast. It does not know any boundaries of age, race, religion, or even socioeconomic status. Approximately 40% of California women experience physical intimate partner violence in their lifetimes. Last year, 1700 people in San Luis Obispo County sought relief from domestic violence. 

To prevent domestic violence, it takes a community. Today, Stand Strong, formerly known as the Women’s Shelter of San Luis Obispo County, is calling on all community members to come together and support one another with dignity, respect and compassion to prevent violence.

Join Fred Munroe as he speaks with Kirsten Rambo, Executive Director with Stand Strong, Robin Mitchell Hee, President of the Board of Directors, and Sheryl Wolcott, member of the board of directors as they discuss how Stand Strong is working to end domestic violence in San Luis Obispo County through support, education and advocacy, and we invite you to join the movement.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
