Greenhouse 17 Launches "17 Days/17 Ways"

As part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a Kentucky advocacy agency is launching a social media campaign to educate the community on intimate partner abuse.

Each day for the first 17 days of the month Greenhouse 17 will share one way to combat abuse.

In a recent 12 month period, at least 25 Kentucky women died at the hands of male intimate partners. For decades, law enforcement, governments and social service agencies have worked to increase awareness and prevention of such violence.  That effort continues during this year’s observance of Domestic Violence Month.
