Why Do They Stay? An Exercise in Understanding Domestic Violence
October 25, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Don’t miss your chance to participate in an enlightening exercise that will help you develop a new perspective on domestic violence. You can attend “Why Do They Stay?” for FREE at UW-Superior Wednesday, October 25th, starting at 5:30 pm. All community members are invited! Refreshments will be served.
Featuring keynote speaker Scott Miller, and facilitated by CASDA and the Douglas County DV-CCR, “Why Do They Stay?” shares information interactively so that participants can personally feel and observe the steps and barriers often faced by victims of domestic violence when they attempt to leave their abusive partner. According to CASDA Executive Director Kelly Burger, “Domestic violence is a hard issue to understand. This activity allows people to walk in the shoes of a victim, think about what they would do in a similar situation, and come away with a much stronger understanding of what it’s truly like.”
Exercise will be followed by small group discussions and a large group panel discussion. We hope to see you there!
