TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

In Tallahassee on Tuesday night, several survivors of domestic violence shared their stories.

Community partners offered services and support for those wanting to learn more about ways to help prevent domestic violence.

After a presentation by several groups, six survivors came forward and spoke up about what they went through.
