JCC to hold Domestic Violence Awareness Event Apr. 5

Are you, or someone you know, a survivor of domestic violence?  On Friday, April 5, the Jefferson Community College Health and Wellness Center will host Take Back the Night (TBTN) at 6:00 p.m. in the Robert R. and Jean S. Sturtz Theater to raise awareness of domestic violence and provide a healing platform for victims, survivors and the community. Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Take Back the Night, an internationally observed event, will feature guest speakers, a domestic violence resource fair and a homemade display known as the Clothesline Project.  

Among a variety of guest speakers are NYS Assemblywoman Addie Russell and Jefferson County District Attorney, Cindy Intschert.

At the domestic violence resource fair, attendees will meet area representatives that offer supportive and educational services to victims of domestic violence.

The Clothesline Project, a vehicle for women affected by domestic violence to express their emotions, will showcase a string of messages on t-shirts decorated by students.
