DA's Against Domestic Violence
District Attorney for Nowata and Washington Counties, Kevin Buchanan, hosted an educational event Tuesday morning at the Bartlesville Community Center. The event, part of DAs against Domestic Violence, featured a video that told the story of a woman who faced domestic violence and died from it. The video featured interviews with those who knew the woman and some of the things they saw and did leading up to the woman's eventual death. The purpose is to help you understand what you can do to help those facing domestic violence. One of the attendees, Tina, said that was exactly why she came. Representative Earl Sears voiced similar feelings. Kristin Bradley from the Family Crisis and Counseling Center says that she believes this event was a success.
