On Monday, October 27, 2014 from 6-8pm join us at Marygrove College in the Main Dining Hall of the Madame Cadillac Building to hear a panel of men advocates discuss intimate partner violence.
Organizations that would like to have a free display table call 313-927-1484. Space is limited and we give priority to Domestic Violence and/or Sexual Assault agencies, no vending allowed, information only tables are available.
It is imperative that we provide opportunities for community members, students, staff, faculty and local organizations to get together and discuss intimate partner violence.
We use Domestic Violence Awareness Month to become aware of the impact of relationship violence within our communities. We also know that non-battering men can be very instrumental in stopping intimate partner violence if given the opportunity to share their stories and expertise in being non-violent in their own relationships and passing on their wisdom to other men.
Therefore, Marygrove College is hosting our annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month event for students, faculty, staff and the community to raise awareness, acknowledge survivors/victims of sexual assault/intimate violence and suggest solutions to the problem.
Our goal is to dispel myths and provide a forum with honest dialogue among ourselves-with men leading the way!
Special guests have been invited!!!
The Marygrove College Social Work Department, The Women’s Center, and SASHA Center will host a reflective evening to educate, inspire and provide support to survivors/victims/all persons affected by sexual assault and domestic violence.
ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND.
On our campus there will be Purple Ribbon Campaign, Domestic Violence Dinner Table Display and The Clothesline Project -honoring those lives that have been impacted by Domestic Violence for the entire month of October.
This is a coordinated activity for the purpose of engaging our students and community and supporting those who may be currently in a violent relationship or recovering from one.
