(KSL News) This month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this morning hundreds of ribbons are hanging near the Sandy City Hall to help bring awareness to the issue.
Laci Warby, a victim's advocate, said, "This is something that happens in the quiet of your neighborhood. It's not something that someone's going to come out and say, 'I have this problem.'"
The ribbons each represent children, adults and families who are all victims of domestic violence. It's part of a public campaign to bring awareness to the growing problem.
Experts say if you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, you can call your local police department for help and resources. You can make that call anonymously, and victims' advocates will help where they can.
