Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015 91B Ann Powers Staff Writer October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Experts say domestic violence is on the rise and bringing down a wider demographic than ever before in ways not traditionally recognized as abuse. "Domestic Violence is so prevalent in society that it's becoming mainstream," said Stacie Berrie, a case manager for the nonprofit Plumas Rural Services in Quincy. "They don't have to hit you for it to be abuse. They can manipulate, belittle, humiliate, blame, ridicule, disrespect andtry to control yOU." In support of the national campaign, PRS is hosting the fifth annual Domestic Violence Walk/Run, starting at 10 a.m. at Feather River College's Equine Facility on Oct. 3. That same day, the second annual Celebration of Courage is scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m., at Pangea Caf6 and Pub in Quincy. The gathering includes an art exhibition featuring Julie HatzeU's "50 Shades of Domestic Violence" and Micaela Rubalcava's "Opening the Heart." Although awareness of domestic violence is improving, officials state more than half of violent acts still go unreported. Worldwide, one in three women has been beaten or abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a family member. "Imagine being With two very different men," shared "Yvonne" - a domestic violence survivor. "One is kind, loving and adoring. He listens to you, brings you flowers and makes you breakfast in bed. The other... reminds you of your faults, belittles you, pushes you, hits you and tells you that you are not loving enough. For a battered woman, these are both the same man." PRS Community Training Manager Dana Nowling said a critical part of the domestic violence awarefiess campaign is to educate people on the various forms of abuse, who they impact and how. "Domestic violence knows no boundaries and can impact anyone regardless of their social, economic, racial or cultural background," she explained. "Men, children and teenagers experience abuse as well." Officials said domestic violence in a relationship often begins with threats and Plumas Rural Services case manager Stacie Berrie helps victims of abuse reclaim their lives, stay safe and prosper.
