Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence
October 11, 2017 @ 5:30 PM - 9:00 PMFree
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Downriver presentation by officials looks to break the silence against domestic violence
The Wayne 12th CDRC is inviting anyone wanting to get educated on stopping domestic violence to attend a free Oct. 11th presentation at the Westfield Activities Center, 2700 Westfield Road in Trenton (behind the Trenton Veterans Memorial Library).
Those who come to the event will hear Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard discuss the law enforcement aspects of the issue, and Michigan Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker (R-26th District) will talk on the legislative aspect. The facility will open the doors to its 120-people seating at 5:30 p.m., with the event starting at 6 p.m.
The event coordinator for the Wayne 12th CDRC, Jason Mueller, said that the Wayne 12th CDRC is hoping to attract “basically women who want to learn about domestic violence,” and to assist them in setting goals for dealing with the issue. Mueller added that an organization in Pontiac had volunteered to provide literature on domestic violence (educating readers on how to recognize the signs of domestic abuse, and providing contact information on getting assistance in dealing with it), and there might be other guest speakers from the court system to speak to the issue as well.
“It’s pretty much that if people need help on domestic violence, there will be no pressure, just a chance to get educated,” he said. “It’s completely free, so hopefully many will get educated that night.”
The Wayne 12th CDRC will be providing free pizza and pop as well at the event. Though there is no cost for the event, an RSVP is required to attend.
To make the RSVP, or to get more information on the event, people can phone (734) 258-7220, email [email protected], or go to the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/12cdrc.
All of the expense in putting on the event is being paid for by the Wayne 12th Congressional District Republican Committee.
