On Sept. 27, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in his chambers. Supporters from across the O‘ahu showed up to discuss the activities and the importance of domestic violence awareness.
According to Caldwell, he felt that domestic violence starts with men and they are the key to ending it. If more men stood up for women in these situations, educated their kids and loved ones, he felt a change could be made.
