College Observes Domestic
For additional information, contact Denise McClung, associate professor, 304-4230.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time to honor those who have lost their lives to domestic violence, to celebrate those who have survived and to support those still in need.
West Virginia University at Parkersburg will help raise awareness of domestic violence by hosting the Clothesline Project Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 16-17). The project is a visual display of the impact of domestic violence.
The display may be viewed from 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday (Oct. 16) and 8 a.m.-2 p.m., Tuesday (Oct. 17) in the college’s multi-purpose room.
Representatives from the Family Crisis Intervention Center will be available to answer questions and provide information.
In addition, Lori Fleagle, director of the Calhoun County DART program, will give a presentation on Monday at noon in Rooms 2536-38 at the college. She is a domestic violence survivor and has a powerful story to share.
Viewing of the display and the presentation is free and open to the public.
The college’s activities are being coordinated by the campus Social Justice Committee and a PSYC 350 class taught by Denise McClung.
