We encourage everyone to participate in Purple Thursday by wearing purple on October 19 to raise awareness of Domestic Violence. Together, we can call attention to this very important issue and tell your friends, family, and coworkers “Enough is Enough.”
How does the world look from another’s perspective – particularly from the view of a woman who is experiencing violence? In Her Shoes is a profound, interactive workshop which allows us to temporarily experience life as a woman experiencing domestic violence. In this learning/experiential simulation, participants move through several stations, exposing them to the various challenges that a survivor faces and difficult decisions they must make. Limited space. Reservations Required. Refreshments will be provided.
Together against bullying — united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to showing that you care about preventing bullying?
