The Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence is hosting its 10th Annual Purple for Peace Luncheon. This year’s event will be held October 3, 2019, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Jackson Convention Complex in Jackson, MS. This year’s theme is “Joining Forces to Strengthen the Path of Advocacy.”
Experts in domestic violence have long known that the most dangerous time for a domestic violence victim and her/his children are the days immediately following their separation from their perpetrator, which places family courts worldwide on the front lines of a dangerous and volatile epidemic. Over the past decade, the Center for Judicial Excellence has tracked the number of children murdered by a parent when divorce, separation, custody, visitation or child support was mentioned in news coverage.
