Saturday marked the first day of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

In Waco, one group is hoping to bring attention to the cause.

Voices For All held a nearly 6 mile march that brought together survivors and supporters.

The group hoped that recent events would encourage people in an abusive relationship, or know of someone in one, to seek help.

“We had a young lady who was beheaded there here, first name Natasha. And it’s just being here close to home, we need to get out and let them know there is hope when it comes to domestic violence,” said Denise Wolford, Voices for All organizer. “There are people out here…trying to keep the community aware of what’s going on so you can get out and get help.”

The march began at Trendwood Apartments and ended at Dorris Miller Cemetery.
