Solicitor Walt Wilkins announced Monday that his office has formed the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council to help combat domestic violence in Greenville and Pickens Counties. 

“October is domestic violence awareness month,” stated Solicitor Wilkins. “I encourage everyone to reflect on this important community issue.  Wear purple with a purpose and strike up a conversation with a neighbor about the need to curb domestic violence in our community.”

Wilkins said professionals from Counseling Services, Hospitals, Law Enforcement, School Systems, and Social Services will make up the Council in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit.

Businesses and Organizations are encouraged to attend the council’s quarterly meetings and become a part of not only the conversation but also programs and initiatives that are forthcoming.

Programs and initiatives will include creating public service announcements, victim safety kits, and an interactive information bank.  

Wilkins said the council is self-sustaining and will fundraise to cover its own expenses.
