Superior Student Raises Awareness Against Domestic Violence

'Roller Skating Toward Respect'

Superior High School requires their students to do senior projects, and with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Rachael Tuve, a senior at Superior High School, had the perfect idea for a project.

She worked with classmates to make a video raising awareness against domestic violence. Then, she partnered with World of Wheels in Superior and invited the community to come skate, and learn about CASDA and the important work they do.

“Often in a domestic violence situation, the blame will be put on the victim, so I feel like giving money helps support the people who have been victimized,” said Tuve.

Skating was free at the event, but donations were welcomed, and all proceeds went to benefit CASDA.

In 2015, 602 domestic violence calls were taken by the Superior Police Department and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department.
