CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) –MUSC is holding it’s third annual “Do No Harm” rally to spread awareness about domestic violence on Wednesday, October 26.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is expected to attend, along with other local leaders and domestic violence survivors.

Domestic violence is a public health problem across the world, however, South Carolina has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the country.

At the rally, survivors will share their stories, along with important perspectives from the law enforcement, legal and health care communities about what we all can implement in our collective efforts to “do no harm.”

The rally is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the MUSC Horsehoe in downtown Charleston
