Look for the table with the purple ribbon icon at Truax Campus the week of Oct. 18 from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Ask about community and campus resources available for those impacted by intimate partner violence. Talk to representatives from Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS) and the Rape Crisis Center, among others, will be on hand.
