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.
