October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and WNCW invited the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence to give us the latest statistics for the state, tips, and advice for those either experiencing or witnessing the problem.  Guest was Dana Mangum, Executive Director of the Coalition.  Original air date was October 6, 2017.

One of the most tragic things that can ever happen is a child getting hurt through abuse of one type or another. Children are the victims of predators, members of their own family, people they trust or people they don't know. When times are rough a parent or parents take it out on the children.

On Wednesday, April 24th, it's Denim Day in Haywood County. No, it's not just another 'casual' day. It's a day dedicated to remember the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.  The story of how it came to be referred to as "Denim Day" is truly amazing. This is not a story for the very young, but it's a story that has to be told. Tune in Monday, April 22 at 8:50 am to hear this very important interview with Buffy Queen, Community Educator with Reach of Haywood.
