At 7:00 PM On April 4, 2013, a number of area groups including Safe Futures (Formerly the Women’s Center of Southeast Connecticut) , The Rose Conrad Foundation, and Hadassah American Affairs of Eastern Connecticut will come together at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, to present a program about the problem of domestic violence and the resources available to victims. The program entitled The Power of Purple – An End to Domestic Violence will feature resource tables, a short film and a presentation by keynote speaker, Gena Barreca, humorist, author, and professor of Women’s Studies at the University of Connecticut.
The program is free and open to the public. If you or anyone you know is affected by domestic violence or if you just want to learn more and do your part to recognize and prevent domestic violence, please attend.
