BROOKLYN - City officials and local advocates are using one woman's story as a way to help raise awareness during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

To combat domestic violence, the mayor's office, unveiled its That's Abuse campaign during the 13th Annual March to Remember Gladys Ricart. She was killed on her wedding day in 1999 by an ex-boyfriend.

The campaign features 1,600 ads encouraging women to get help at the first signs of abuse.

The That's Abuse signs are going up now through the end of the year.
