Statistics show that every 9 seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted.  In fact, domestic violence is said to be the leading cause of injury to women, with over one million women a year requiring medical attention after being a victim of domestic violence.
 
Turning Point is West Alabama's agency that helps fight domestic violence and has a shelter for victims.  A walk to benefit Turning Point will be held at Snow Hinton Park on October 28th.  Registration is only $20, and pre-registration is available at the Turning Point offices.  More information may be obtained by calling (205) 758-0808.
