What: October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To commemorate the strides community leaders and businesses make to stamp out domestic violence in their communities, the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence is proud to announce the winners of the 2nd Annual Community Hero Awards. These “Community Heroes” have exemplified tremendous community support for their local domestic violence programs, and have helped their communities become more intolerant of abuse. Domestic violence programs from around the state submitted their nominations based on the businesses or individuals they wanted to recognize for going above and beyond in support of their organization.
