Our first platform address of the fall season will be presented by Ms. Angeles Evans of TurnAround, Inc., a private, non-profit organization which BES supported last winter with our canned food and clothing drives. Ms. Evans will cover the various forms of abuse involved in intimate partner violence. She will offer quizzes that create conversations about intimate partner violence and highlight some stereotypes, challenges, or barriers to helping victims of violence. Her presentation will end with some brainstorming as to how we might mobilize as a community to respond to and/or better serve families and victims of intimate partner violence.
