Southfield hosts Walk to Raise Awareness of Domestic Violence

“I am a survivor of domestic violence,” said Margaret Hall, founder of Southfield Domestic Violence Group.

It’s one of the reasons Margaret Hall showed up at the Southfield Civic Center Sunday for the 3rd Walk to Raise Awareness of Domestic Violence.

“I didn’t look like the person who has experienced domestic violence. I was college educated, I was married with two children. I had what some people call the perfect life,” Hall said of being a survivor of domestic violence.

But, her life was anything but perfect, she says.

“I knew that we had to get out if we were going to live. And, I had to one day call the police,” Hall said.

Now, Southfield police know her by name as a partner in advocacy work. Motivated by her own journey, in 2007, Hall founded the Southfield Domestic Violence Group, one of the walk’s partners.
