Earlier this week, Lynnwood’s Mayor Don Gough, and City Councilmembers unanimously approved a proclamation recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The city is partnering with the YWCA of King and Snohomish County to raise awareness in thecommunity about the negative impacts domestic violence has on the community.
Hundreds of children from all around Snohomish County created special flags, which are hung at the Lynnwood Recreation Center. The artists were inspired by the book Hands Are Not For Hitting, Hands Are For… Their artwork and messages will be on display through Sunday, Oct. 20.
The Lynnwood Police Guild has donating purple light bulbs for distribution at the Lynnwood Recreation Center. The community is urged to display “purple light nights” to show that domestic violence has no place in our community.
