Exposing the Secrets: Domestic Violence in Our Community will be held Oct. 14, 2013 from 6 until 9 p.m. at Fox Valley Technical College’s Appleton campus in room C190.

The free educational session, sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Training Center at Fox Valley Technical College,  is open to members of the public interested in learning more about domestic violence personally and professionally. Preregistration is not required.

The next time you are in a room with 6 people, think about this:

  • 1 in 3 women experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes
  • 1 in 3 teens experience sexual or physical abuse or threats from a boyfriend or girlfriend in 1 year
  • 1 in 5 men have experienced some form of sexual victimization in their lives
  • 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men were sexually abused before the age of 18

These are not just numbers. They are our mothers, fathers, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, children, co-workers and friends. They are the person you confide in most at work, the guy you play basketball with, the people in your book club, your teen – or even yourself. The silence and shame must end for good.

Session topics:

  • 1 in 3
  • The Little Victims
  • Love Letters
  • Conclusion – Q and A
