Domestic violence awareness event held at Fresno City College

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Some local city colleges spent Thursday raising awareness about domestic violence.

Several speakers gathered on campus at Fresno City College to talk about a crime that often goes unreported. A number of booths provided information on services and people wore purple in support of domestic violence victims.

"There's a lot of stigma especially with men coming forward, especially people that don't know that they're in a domestic violence relationship," Dr. Megan Turner with Campus Community Connection said. "So, we're just hoping to get the information out there so that we are aware that students are coming to us, that we're talking about it."

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
