Kendra Davis will speak at the Rural Hall Branch Library’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month program on Saturday, Oct. 11. The program will begin at noon. The branch is located at 7125 Broad St. in Rural Hall.

October has been national Domestic Violence Awareness Month since the 1980s. That is when several agencies joined forces to make Americans more aware of domestic violence, which can affect anyone, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or economic status.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, nearly 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, that equates to more than 10 million women and men. One in three women and one in four men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.

Davis is a popular, powerhouse speaker who is committed to empowering individuals with words and advice.
A trainer, professional development coach and empowerment specialist, Davis leads Kendra Davis Ministries, whose motto is “Your Past Failures Will Not Dictate Your Future.”

Davis is a true Winston-Salem State University Ram, earning her Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology (1999) and a Master of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (2009) from the university.
