Love Shouldn’t Hurt

Love Shouldn’t Hurt

Hosted by: CT Valley Seventh Day Adventist Church

About:

A dating violence awareness seminar taking place in a church open to the community. Why in a church? For one, dating abuse (intimate partner violence) is a topic that is hardly spoken about in church but we know that it can affect anyone regardless of of gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic standing, ethnicity, religion or culture. We will be discussing what is dating abuse, how to identify signs, resources available, and "one thing" we can do as individuals, as a church, and as a community to make a difference.

354 Foster Road
South Windsor, CT 06074

When:

2020-02-15 14:30 to 16:30

Kickball Game

Kickball Game

Hosted by: Unity House: Domestic Violence Services

About:

 

With February as Teen Dating Violence Awareness month, the opportunity to engage young people in the discussion of healthy relationships is never as great as it is now.

 

Stalking, sexual violence and trafficking, just to name a few, are issues that we see more and more of our young people dealing with on a day to day basis.

 

As a collective, Unity House strongly believes that being preventative is more effective than being reactionary. That mindset is what drives UHDVS to put on these Teen Dating Violence Awareness events directed at the youth in our community, and this year is no different. On February 29th from 4:30pm-8pm, Unity House Domestic Violence Services will be hosting an event- a kickball game, at MD Sports Hall, located in Troy New York. We will have a dialogue led by Unity House staff members about Teen Dating Violence, its importance, it’s prevalence, and ways that we all can become allies and end dating violence amongst young people for good, followed by the kickball game and we’ll end with some food. In addition, we will also have a time/space set aside for those amongst us who would like to share their personal experiences with us. As a precaution, there will be licensed support staff on hand. And as always, this is a free event, put on for the community, where everyone is welcomed
