music by local bands and fun lasting right up until the Awards Ceremony.

Domestic Violence
Awareness Month

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness
month in the United States It is a subject that is largely ignored by
mainstream media, given that three women are murdered every day in the US by
their current or former partners. Some statistics show that as many as 4, 000
women per year die from domestic violence around the world. Family Resource
Center will be hosting a series of events throughout the month of October to
raise awareness for this issue in our Territory. Do what you can do end
domestic violence. If you see something, say something. Break the silence. End the violence!

D. Hamilton Jackson / Liberty Day- Holiday

Commonly referred to as "Bread and Bowl Day"
Held as a public holiday in the U.S. Virgin Islands annually on 1 November, Liberty Day commemorates David Hamilton Jackson and the institution of Free Press in the Danish West Indies, now the U.S. Virgin Islands.
As a territory of Denmark, the Danish West Indies were under severe censorship on all publications. David Hamilton Jackson, who was born in St. Croix in 1884, petitioned the King of Denmark for freedom of press. Jackson was successful in his efforts to remove strict censorship in the Danish West Indies that had been in place in 1779. He started the first free newspaper, the Herald, and helped organize the first labor union in the Danish West Indies during the early 20th century.
“Liberty Day” is celebrated on 1 November—the day Jackson printed the first addition of the Herald in 1915—in appreciation of his efforts on behalf of the people.
