    A Message from AWARE Peer Educator Amanda:

    “Our mission as peer educators at IUP is to bring light to the issue of domestic violence. Our domestic violence awareness campaign will take place the week of Oct. 13 through Oct. 17. We also aim to debunk myths about domestic violence. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence; it does not discriminate between race, gender, or socioeconomic class.”
