Finding Our Voices at SAAM Event


On Tuesday April 19 at the US Air Force Academy, Arnold Hall Theatre, 3202 Cadet Drive, a workshop will be held for community agencies. Agencies will be available from noon until 4 to share services they offer. At 12:30PM a Community Resource Panel will present and at 2:15 Dr. Dorothy Edwards, University of Kentucky, will give the keynote address. The Advocacy Resource Team sponsoring this event says:  "Our individual and collective efforts can stop the epidemic of violence in our communities.  Each one of us has a role to play as a bystander in our society to promote behaviors, choices, words, and attitudes that can communicate tolerance for sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and domestic violence." This is a workshop in coordination with SAAM: Sexual Abuse Awareness Month. 

Lynn Tolson (Project 4 TEARS) and Joyce Aubrey of Finding Our Voices will be attending along side TESSA and other community agencies. Email fovartshow@gmail.com if you have any questions.
