Gallery Icon Domestic Violence Awareness Event and Art Show

Unity House’s Domestic Violence Services program celebrated DV Awareness Month with an Awareness Event and Art Show at The Arts Center for the Capital Region in downtown Troy. Sponsored by Albany Medical Center, the event showcased the artwork of survivors of domestic violence and honored the community collaboration needed to address the issue in our community. Honored at the event were Barb Michalski of National Grid and Theresa Weinman of Albany Medical College. Gwen Wright, the NYS Executive Director of the Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, helped open the event and reminded attendees of the startling facts of DV in our community: one in four people will become a victims of domestic violence.
