On Monday, Spokane citizens tuned in to watch the End The Violence documentary, part of a communitywide campaign designed to end domestic violence in Spokane, which has higher rates of family violence than elsewhere in the state. As this conversation proceeds, Mayor David Condon also has declared the month of October 2019 Spokane Strong Month.
Throughout the month of October, the City will address public safety topics, including domestic violence. Other topics of discussion are fire prevention, crime prevention, and property crimes efforts.
“The safety and health of our community is one of the four key initiatives in the One Spokane plan, the first-ever Joint Administration-City Council Strategic Plan,” said Mayor Condon. “The City remains committed to improving public safety by fostering a healthy and compassionate community where all people feel safe, empowered and welcome.”
The Spokane Strong Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month proclamations will be read during the Monday, Oct. 8, City Council meeting.
