Men need to step up and accept accountability when it comes to dealing with the impact of domestic abuse in the area, according to a Sturgeon Bay victims advocate organization. Help of Door County Executive Director Steve Vickman says it is not uncommon for abuse victims to bury their memories of a traumatic instance. He says the Me Too movement and recent national stories have created more awareness locally while reinforcing that more has to be done.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. You can find more information on Help of Door County services below.
