October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Can you identify the types and signs of abuse? Do you know what to do if you suspect someone is being abused? Not knowing, should not be an excuse!

We all deserve to experience healthy and happy relationships. You are invited to join us for special multi-campus presentations listed below to learn about the covert aspects of power and control in unhealthy relationships. You’ll hear firsthand experiences by ‘survivors’ of domestic abuse, from CMPD, the local district attorney’s office, mental health clinicians, and the college’s Title IX program advocates who’ve partnered together to speak out against intimate partner violence. In addition, a special panel exhibit Survivor Stories will be on display the week of presentations at each campus.

Attendees will receive invaluable information on violence prevention resources and services available in the community and at the college. Light refreshments will be provided.
