Exposing the Secrets:
Domestic Violence in the Community

Monday, October 14
Fox Valley Technical College
1825 N. Bluemound Drive, Appleton
Room C190 (use entrance 15)

The next time you're in a room with six people, think about this:
  • 1 in 3 women experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes
  • 1 in 3 teens experience sexual or physical abuse or threats from a boyfriend or girlfriend in one year
  • 1 in 5 men have experienced some form of sexual victimization in their lives
  • 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men were sexually abused before the age of 18
These are not just numbers. They are our mothers, fathers, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, children, co-workers and friends. They are the person you confide in most at work, the guy you play basketball with, the people in your book club, your teen - or even yourself. The silence and shame must end for good.

This educational session is free and open to all community members interested in learning more about domestic violence personally and professionally. Pre-registration is NOT required.

Session Topics:
  • 1 in 3
  • The Little Victims
  • Love Letters
  • Conclusion - Q&A
Session is possible through the generosity of The Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs.
