WHEREAS, domestic violence poisons relationships, destroys lives, and shatters the bedrock of our society — the family. Homes should be places of comfort and stability where love and mutual respect thrive.
WHEREAS, domestic violence erodes this environment, leaving many Americans in potentially life-threatening situations. We must resolve to have zero tolerance for acts of domestic violence.
WHEREAS, domestic violence affects victims regardless of income, race, gender, or socioeconomic status. Each of us has a duty to speak out against these crimes and to make every effort to prevent such tragedies from occurring.
WHEREAS, together, we can ensure those who have suffered at the hands of abusers receive needed care and support, and we can protect potential victims from future abuse.
WHEREAS, During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we reaffirm our steadfast commitment to empowering survivors and ending this deeply destructive abuse.
WHEREAS, this month we strengthen our resolve to ensure homes are places of refuge, comfort, and protection — and not places of fear and abuse. We renew our commitment to support and protect victims, hold perpetrators accountable, and prevent violence before it starts.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Allen Foster, Mayor of Cumberland County, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the State of Tennessee, do proclaim October 2021 as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Cumberland County and I call upon all citizens to stand firm in condemning domestic violence and supporting survivors of these crimes in finding the safety and recovery they need.
