AFB Taking Stand Against Domestic Violence | VideoAmy Fox | 10/17/2012
And, Minot is no exception.
But, some Airmen and women at Minot Air Force Base are working together to speak out about domestic violence on base.
The group stood in front of other airmen and women to form a "purple people line," to say domestic violence is not okay and it has no place on base.
While many domestic violence cases go unreported, the Air Force hopes to prevent future cases from happening on base.
"Just building conversation and discussion prompts people to discuss the issue and talk amongst each other. And, it also allows them to get aware of what`s going on around them, what they need to do to address it,” said Minot AFB Family Advocacy Officer Jeffery Smith.
The event`s theme was called "one is too many" to go along with the Air Force`s zero tolerance policy for domestic violence.
