Fourth annual March Against Domestic Violence slated for Oct. 3

The fourth annual March Against Domestic Violence will take place at noon Tuesday, Oct. 3, on the Mall in front of Fogler Library.

The march is sponsored by MBS Corps, which partnered with UMaine Athletics, Student Life, Partners for Peace (formerly known as Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance) and other organizations.

Following the march, remarks will be made by Robert Dana, vice president for student life and dean of students at UMaine; Amanda Cost, facilitative director at Partners for Peace; representatives from several on-campus groups including MBS Corps, Male Athletes Against Violence (MAAV) and UMaine Army ROTC; and members of the community who have been affected by domestic violence.

Last year’s march drew about 200 participants. Everyone is encouraged to attend and support the cause. For more information, contact Nory Jones at njones@maine.edu.
