 In 2016, the United Methodist Women began to raise awareness about Domestic Violence through a partnership with the City of Suffolk's Commonwealth Attorney's office.  Forums covering different aspects of the effects of domestic violence were held and new partnerships were formed with other local organizations that deal with these issues.
