District Attorneys across the state are banding together to take a stance against domestic violence this month. DAs against DV is a national campaign that Oklahoma got involved with last year.

Brian Hermanson, Kay and Noble county district attorney said domestic violence is a large problem in Oklahoma.

"I think Oklahoma is one of the ones who take it the most serious, because we see everyday the problem that it causes," Hermanson said.

The problem is so big in our state it has it’s own docket.

On top of raising awareness they are going to collect old phones and accessories. Hermanson said these phones will be given to victims of domestic violence.

"So that they can have a way to communicate without their ex-spouses, loved ones, whoever being able to figure out where they are or what they’re doing," Hermanson said.

The phones memory will be wiped clean, and restored to its original settings and refurbished.

There will also be a movie showing in Perry, which shows a real women’s battle with domestic violence.
