Raising Voices Against Domestic Violence
FINAL SESSION: Saturday, July 30th — Don’t miss it!
This 9-month project is a collaboration of Safe Futures with Writers Block Ink. Forum participants will engage in group discussions with Safe Futures advocates and work with Writer’s Block Ink facilitators to use theater to explore the root causes of domestic violence (10 am – 12 noon). Directly following the forum, from 12 – 2 pm, is an Open Arts Studio, in which participants can choose to attend 1 of 5 arts sessions, which include writing, visual arts, dance, and drumming. These sessions – and a private space to record stories of experiencing or witnessing domestic violence – will allow participants to express themselves and their experiences through the arts.
- Community Forum: Saturday, July 30th, 10 am-12 noon
- Open Arts Studio: Saturday, July 3oth – 12-2 pm

Today, Safe Futures operates two 24-hour hotlines, an emergency shelter, and a transitional living program for families working to rebuild lives shattered by domestic violence or sexual assault. Safe Futures also provides counseling and advocacy, case management, court advocacy, support groups, and educational programs for schools and community groups.
