Speak UP Against Domestic Violence
Thursday, October 17, 2013
6:30 PM-9:00 PM
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Andover Newton and Safe Haven, an interfaith partnership against domestic violence, will co-sponsor “Speak Up,” a racially diverse interfaith question-and-answer panel discussion and candlelight vigil, on campus at Andover Newton on Thursday, Oct. 17. The discussion will look at how domestic violence affects communities of faith and the larger society as well as how religious communities can help prevent abuse.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m. in Noyes Hall and is expected to go until 9 p.m. Contributions to the Renewal House Shelter are welcome. Cash donations; new or like-new household items and new toiletries for babies, children, and adults; or gift cards to Target, Walgreens, or Stop & Shop are all suggested.
