News Center Maine covers March Against Domestic Violence
News Center Maine reported on the sixth annual March Against Domestic Violence held at the University of Maine. “This group we expect to be the largest attendance that we’ve ever had for the march,” said Austin Cashman, a UMaine student and member of the Maine Business School (MBS) Corps, which organized the event. “Each year we just keep trying to grow this audience … this isn’t required by anyone. Everyone you see behind me is here strictly on their own initiative.” Among the speakers at the event was U.S. Rep. Jared Golden, who said it is important to talk about domestic violence. “This is a significant problem in Maine — talk to any police department, police officer, and they can tell you that,” he said. “Raising awareness is, I think, a bigger part of trying to push back against this problem.” WVII (Channel 7) also covered the event.
